Supporters of the Oswegoland Park & Recreation Foundation, including board members, Friends of the Parks, youth groups, Scout troops and community members, will plant trees Saturday Oct. 20 at Prairie Point Park.
“’We’re continuing our mission to create groves of trees throughout Oswego’s largest park as a legacy for the community to enjoy,” says Candice Hadley, chair of the Park Foundation. “We’ve had a great turn-out from the community the past few years and expect to continue that tradition this Saturday.”
Volunteers, including youth groups (age 10+) and anyone who enjoys our parks, are invited to don their gardening gloves, bring a shovel if available and gather in the parking lot off of Plainfield Road and Woolley Road starting at 10 a.m. Oct. 20 for about two hours. Questions, contact Candice Hadley, 630-554-8989.
Local residents who are passionate about securing the beauty of our natural environment formed the Oswegoland Park & Recreation Foundation in 2004. The tax-exempt organization supports the goals of the Oswegoland Park District and offers residents options for tax-deductible cash and land donations “for a greener tomorrow.”
Projects have included partnering with the Conservation Foundation to preserve a key parcel of Reservation Woods and the ongoing commemorative brick paver program in Hudson Crossing Park. The brick paver order form is online and printable from the site or you can pick one up at any Park District location.
