The Friends of Busse Woods was established in 2008. Our mission is to restore, restock, protect and preserve its natural lands together with their flora and fauna for the education, pleasure, and recreation of the public at Busse Woods. Volunteer groups work to restore habitat throughout Busse Woods in cooperation with the Forest Preserves of Cook County. Volunteers work to restore a unique, rich, and diverse habitat. Join us at an ecological restoration workday. Activity varies by season and includes invasive plant control, seed collecting, and monitoring.

Please register at the FPCC Volunteer Page for more details on each workday. Space may be limited due to location and activity. Groups of 10 or more please contact us to confirm space for your group.
