Event description

Description

Being outside as a family is amazing. Join us in planting prairie plants and cleaning up the river in downtown Naperville.

Dr. Gregory Ruthig, Associate Professor of Biology at North Central College, will teach us about the prairie, and kids will get to plant a prairie plant in the College’s prairie. Afterwards, we’ll be outfitted with bags, gloves and claws to walk the river and clean it up. We’ll be cleaning up the river from Washington to Hillside Road.

This is a wonderful way to spend your Sunday afternoon and it will be great for the environment.
