Who We Are

Habitat 2030 Logo

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.

Advisory Group
The Habitat 2030 Advisory Group is made up of some of the most dedicated members of Habitat 2030. We work together to organize workdays, educational, and social events as well as run the website, email list, and social media pages. We explore new ideas and figure out where Habitat 2030 is going in the future! Check the calendar to join us at an upcoming meeting. If you have any questions please contact us at habitat2030@gmail.com.
