Home Newsroom 218. Family Planting Day with the Barrington Area Conservation Trust

Help teach your kids how important it is to protect and preserve our open land with the first ever Family Planting Day hosted by the Barrington Area Conservation Trust this Saturday, September 21st.  They’ll reserve a plot of land just for your family to plant at Pedersen Preserve across from Barrington High School and all you have to bring are your gardening gloves and some helping hands from your own families.

Family Planting Day is happening from 1 to 3 p.m. this Saturday, September 21st.  You’ll find the Pedersen Preserve at Hart & Lake-Cook Roads across from BHS.

With a tax-deductible donation of $100, you will receive a planting area just for your family plus native plantings and supplies to help sustain the new vegetation as it takes root. You will also receive a plaque to decorate, marking your family’s plot and they will be taking photos of your families to give you, in thanks for your contribution.  The donation also includes a 1-year membership to the Barrington Area Conservation Trust so you can be a part of their ongoing efforts to preserve the open spaces and natural resources in and around Barrington.

Here’s the schedule of activities they have planned for Family Planting Day

  • 1:00 pm Welcome & introduction
  • 1:15 pm Start planting!
  • 2:00 pm Guided tour of new plantings with land preservation team
  • 2:30 pm Enjoy refreshments

So be sure to come prepared to help preserve just one of the many open spaces in Barrington.  Founded in 2001, the Barrington Area Conservation Trust works tirelessly to preserve the community’s open land, rural character, scenic, recreational, historic and natural resources through advocacy, education and promotion of responsible land stewardship.
