Buckthorn or Bust Bonfire with LLBean

Removing buckthorn at Far Field Nature Preserve

Join us and LLBean for a Buckthorn or Bust Bonfire at Far Field Nature Preserve on Sunday, March 4th from 10:00am -12:00pm.  Help cut down buckthorn and clear brush.  Please wear sturdy shoes and clothing and bring your own water.  We will provide tools, snacks and bonfire.  All ages are welcome.  Participants will earn volunteer hours.  Hope to see you there!

For more information on buckthorn watch this great video from the Shedd Aquarium about why this invasive species is so detrimental to native plants, trees and the surrounding eco-system.
