Restoring nature. Building community.
Habitat 2030 is a group of volunteers who care about the remarkable natural areas of the Chicago region. We host habitat restoration workdays, nature hikes and weekend camping trips, social gatherings, and educational opportunities. At workdays, we remove invasive plants, gather and spread seeds, and learn about nature as we go. We link interested newbies to expert mentors and are building a community where people of all skill levels can discuss local ecology, conservation, and habitat restoration issues. Everyone is welcome!
Who’s supposed to show up?
We welcome all ages! Most of our volunteers are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s (we kept getting older, so we pushed the age up), but we’ll put you to work no matter what age you are. Kids of volunteers are welcome, too, though parents will be expected to closely supervise their offspring.
