Join habitat restoration at Bliss Woods Jan. 27

A habitat restoration work day will be held at Bliss Woods Forest Preserve on Saturday, Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Cutting and stacking invasive brush will be the main tasks. Tools are provided but feel free to bring your favorite loppers and hand cutters.

If conditions allow old brush piles will be burned. Best to wear clothing made of natural materials.

Bliss Woods is a high-quality woodland hosting many rare and unusual plants. Removing invasive species will help sustain its unique nature. Please dress in layers, with sturdy footwear and work gloves.

Participants will meet in the main parking lot off Bliss Road in Sugar Grove. Refreshments will be available at the break.

Anyone under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. For information, email Mary Ochsenschlager at or call Robb at the Kane County Forest Preserve at (630) 232-5980.
