If it is raining on any of the Saturdays, we will postpone that workday to Sunday morning. We aren't able to use herbicides on days with precipitation for we wouldn't be in compliance with the label. It is the law! Besides, we would be miserable as well!
We meet at the Margareth Reimer Reservoir parking lot at the southeast corner of Quentin Rd and Wood St. Palatine Prairie is located along the railroad tracks at the far north end of the park.
We supply tools and gloves or bring your favorite lopper/and or bow saw. Please dress for the outdoors and bring water. Contact Cyndi Duda at (847-776-8713) for more info or directions.
Where is the Prairie? See map below!

Fall is here! Looks like it'll be beautiful. At long last there are signs the season is changing. Leaves are just starting to change, birds are migrating, geese are flying their familiar V formation heading south and so on. Walking to the Palatine Prairie, some changes are happening. Go and take a peak. Bring your camera and your binoculars. I've seen a few meadowlarks, goldfinches, song sparrows, kestrels, blackbirds, a Cooper's hawk and the list goes on. Check for yourself! Happy fall!
