Earth Day Workday at Miami Woods

Friday, April 06, 2007
Northwest Herald

Forest Preserve District of Cook County Commissioners Larry Suffredin (13th District) and Gregg Goslin (14th District) are pleased to announce that they will join volunteers for a workday in Miami Woods in Niles on Sunday, April 22, 2007 in celebration of Earth Day. 

WHAT:      EARTH DAY WORKDAY

DATE:       SUNDAY, APRIL 22, 2007

TIME:       9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

WHERE:    MIAMI WOODS in Morton Grove; the entrance to Miami Woods is 2 blocks north of Oakton St., just east of Caldwell Ave.  Volunteers will meet near the picnic pavilion and will walk to the work site.

Sponsored by: Forest Preserve District Commissioners Larry Suffredin, Gregg Goslin and North Branch Restoration Project.

Details:  Volunteers are welcome to participate for as long as they wish.  All equipment and supplies will be provided.  The site is often muddy in the spring; please dress accordingly.  We’ll be working rain or shine.

Photos:  This event will provide numerous photo opportunities.

Questions:  Contact Bill Koenig, Forest Preserve District Volunteer Resources Coordinator, 773-631-1790 x11 

“April 22, 2007 is the 37th Anniversary of Earth Day and I am pleased to help organize the Miami Woods workday in recognition of this important annual event,” commented Commissioner Suffredin. 

“The exciting story behind the turnaround of the Cook County Forest Preserve District is the dedication of so many volunteers – those who work in all kinds of weather to do what most of us dread doing in our own backyard,” commended Commissioner Goslin.

This workday caps off a weekend of Earth Day events, including workdays at other sites and an Earth Day celebration featuring refreshments, nature walks and exhibits that will be held at Bunker Hill Forest Preserve, on Caldwell Avenue, between Devon and Touhy, from 1pm – 3pm on Saturday, April 21.
