Saturday October 27: Last workday of the year!

23 Oct

Rainbow Beach Dunes is quiet through the winter– we’re lucky that we don’t have buckthorn or other woody species to contend with. So use the winter months to spend your time at places the do, like your local Forest Preserve.

At the last workday of the season, we’ll be planting several native species throughout the nature area. Our hard work will be rewarded with veggie chili. Bring a snack to share if you like!  Join us this Saturday October 27 from 10am-12pm.

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, wear closed-toed shoes, dress appropriately for the weather, and prepare to get dirty. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.
