Arbor Day graphic

On April 29, The Forest Preserves of Cook County will get some help planting trees as part of its Arbor Day program. Students from Queen of Rosary will learn how to plant trees, and participate in a nature scavenger hunt and other outdoor activities led by staff from the Preserves’ Conservation and Experiential Programming Department. They also will plant new, young trees at the entrance to Busse Woods Main Dam on Arlington Heights Road.

Covering more than 4,000 acres, Busse Woods is a showcase of woods, prairie, wetland, water and wildlife with miles of trails and recreational opportunities.
