Saturday July 28: Sweet clover hunt

24 Jul

On our recent walk, we noticed lots of invasive sweet clover in the Dunes area. I am glad to report that the population in the prairie area is greatly diminished thanks to our diligent efforts at weeding last summer. With some extra attention this weekend, in just a few years I bet sweet clover at this site will be a distant memory! Join us this Saturday from 10am-noon. Be prepared for hot weather with sun protection and plenty of water.

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St. By foot, walk east from South Shore Dr. on 77th St. By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water filtration plant, and park in the first parking lot. Please meet at the entrance to the nature area, which is located at the southern end of the beach. Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.
