Adult and student groups are encouraged to adopt-a-work day. Bringing friends from your work place, school, club, or congregation makes a day outdoors not only more productive, but a lot more fun! To adopt-a-work day with your group, please contact Emily at (847) 387-3149 or e-mail emily@bactrust.org. Please note: Volunteers under the age of 18 need to have a parent/guardian fill out the online Liability Waiver form prior to attending all work days.
