Description

See your restoration efforts grow year after year each time your ride this section of the North Branch Trail. Create Real roots and connections.

The Where The Wild Things Grow program encourages bicycle community involvement in ecological restoration throughout the Chicagoland regional trail network. A partnership between the Out Our Front Door Organization and Habitat2030 to assist local organizations and local land stewards to restore and maintain native habitats in the Lower Lake Michigan Basin Area by bicycle to create native corridors that lead to natural open lands for bike campers and trail users for all.

We will join the North Branch Restoration Project and Centennial Volunteers to restore this oak woodland to its former beauty by bike! "This 76 acre site is new to restoration and will depend on the community of volunteers to remove invasive species and collect native seed, and much more. Large pin oaks are a unique feature of this preserve, which is also home to some beautiful spring ephemerals." -CCFP
