It's been a long cold winter and I'm looking forward to spring. Let's show our appreciation for all the enjoyment that the forest preserve district of Du Page has given us over the years by doing some brush clearing or trash pickup at Fullersburg Woods. If brush clearing isn't your thing, come on out and we'll put you to work picking up trash.

Where: We'll assemble on the deck outside the Fullersburg Woods Visitor Center. There will be an orientation and safety talk conducted by the Dupage FPD.
