The Barrington Area Conservation Trust will be working with students from Barrington High School and local scout troops on a large-scale seeding project at Pederson Nature Preserve, Lake Cook and Hart Roads in Barrington, on November 19 from 10:00 a.m. – noon. The public is invited to help disperse 47.6 pounds of pollinator seed mix at the 5.6 acre parcel of land, which is adjacent to Flint Creek and across from Barrington High School. Wear appropriate clothing and shoes and remember to bring your own water.
Funding for the project is provided in part from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, and the Barrington Junior Women’s Club, as well as donor designated gifts. Click here for the volunteer release form.
