Habitat 2030: Young Chicagoans Who Love Nature

The Forest Preserves of Cook County recently did a write-up on Habitat 2030, an environmental stewardship volunteer group I’ve recently become involved with: http://fpdcc.com/volunteer-spotlight-habitat-2030.

Our events include fun stuff like habitat restoration (removing invasive species, collecting native seeds), bioblitzes, camping, gullywalking, and good ol’ hiking within the awe-inspiring Chicago Wilderness.
