Restoration Work Days

Spend Your Saturday Volunteering at LUREC

Get your community service done in the great outdoors and spend one Saturday a month in beautiful McHenry County restoring Loyola's Retreat and Ecology Campus.  Join us, every month on the second Saturday, for a Restoration Work Day at LUREC. We're always looking for a few good volunteers to help restore the natural areas of our Retreat and Ecology Campus.

Saturday mornings are full of restoration activity and volunteers will get a chance to:

  • clear brush (buckthorn and honeysuckle removal)
  • collect seeds and plant native species.

Restoration Work Day Volunteer Schedule

LUREC Restoration Work Days occur every month on the second Saturday. The volunteer session starts at 9:30 a.m. at LUREC and lunch will be served. *Please note that there will be no vans available during the summer months.
