Project Update-Sterne's Fen Restoration to Continue in 2020
We will be beginning the 2nd phase of the Sterne's Fen Restoration project. The removal of these invasive trees is critical to overall ecological health of the fen. More information can be found on the Crystal Lake Park District 'Project Update' page.
Ongoing Restoration Efforts at Sterne's Woods Highlighted in Video Series presented by the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County
Thank you to the The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County for applying for a grant (and receiving!) from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation to help restore Sterne's Fen in a collaborative effort with the Crystal Lake Park District and the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission.
Restoration workdays are held monthly from 9 - 11 am at the site off of Hillside Road in Crystal Lake. Check out this video of a recent workday created by videographer Steve Firak. And please join us at our next event on November 24th!
Let's all get together and celebrate the holidays with arts & crafts, storytime, fun fair games and more! Don't forget the jolly ole' St. Nick will stop by to hear what all the little ones want under the tree this year.
