Meadowbrook Monday

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

With summer fast approaching, there’s plenty of work to be done at this beautiful preserve along the Valparaiso Moraine. Garlic mustard season is almost past us, but there will be other invasive work to undertake, along with weeding and trail maintenance. The foliage in the forest and on the trails has filled in fast! We’re in need of volunteers to help tame the trails and keep the surrounding areas ecologically diverse.

Be prepared to work outside and dress appropriately for the weather. Conditions on the workday may be wet, warm, or chilly. Volunteer workdays are held in all types of weather, although if conditions become hazardous during or leading into the workday, we may be forced to cancel abruptly. Your safety is our first concern! We will provide all the necessary equipment, gear, and water. We encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle!

So that we can best plan for Meadowbrook Monday, please RSVP through the website form below. Question? Call the office at 219-242-8558 or email
