Citizens for Conservation is planning a special way to commemorate Make a Difference Day, the largest day of community service in the nation. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to join in collecting seed of native plants from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 25th, at CFC headquarters.
Their goal for this fall is to collect enough seed to cover 500 acres of future prairies, savannas and wetlands and you can help them make a difference!
You’ll find CFC headquarters right across from Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital at 459 West Hwy 22 in Lake Barrington. (Look for the white farmhouse with a silo.) Bring gloves and sturdy shoes and join millions of people across the nation working to make their communities better places. The common mission of Make a Difference Day is – simply – to improve the lives of others. To learn more, visit MakeADifferenceDay.com.
