Signup and volunteer! Saturday morning workdays are a great way to begin volunteering and learn about what happens at Nachusa. Activities vary depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Learn more about the types of workday activities taking place this time of year by checking out the Seasonal Workday Page or on our Calendar.
What To Expect on a Workday
There's no need to let us know ahead of time that you will be participating in a Saturday workday, unless you are coming with a group of 3 or more people.
Just show up at the Headquarters Barn located at 8772 S. Lowden Road in Franklin Grove before 9 a.m. The group will leave the barn promptly for the work site soon after everyone has introduced themselves and been briefed by the steward leading the workday.
Workday equipment and snacks are provided. Please wear long pants, sturdy footwear, and work gloves. Also bring a lunch if you would like to join other volunteers, stewards, scientists, and crew members at noon.
