From the City of Lake Forest Park Master Plan
for Grace Cole Nature Park

The Lake Forest Park Stewardship Foundation is having a special event for April.

To start. there will be a work party on Saturday, April 28 at Grace Cole Nature Park

The task will be putting in plants along the trail and removing invasive species. Tools will be available, but feel free to bring your own shovels, loppers or other favorites. Gloves will also be available. Wear substantial shoes and be prepared for whatever weather can happen this time of year. Bring a water bottle, too.

Time: 9 AM to 12 noon

But wait! There's more!

A special feature on this day will be the opportunity to participate in a class at the park on Streamside Ecology from 10 to 12, if you choose. This class is conducted by the Adopt-a-Stream Foundation, and taught by their knowledgeable staff.

You may choose to stay to participate in Adopt-a-Stream's afternoon work party from 1 to 3, which will be engaged in installing new plants in the wetland area. If you do this you should be sure to bring a lunch. Snacks will be provided, but you'll want a more substantial lunch if you stay for the full-day event.

This is an opportunity to satisfy several hours of community service hours for students, and to make students and adults feel good for having helped to make this local park a better place for people and wildlife.
