Sierra Club Earth Day Workday and Celebration 2024

The Sierra Club is announcing a partnership with the Prospect Heights Natural Resources Commission, the Prospect Heights Park District, the City of Prospect Heights, Commonwealth Edison, and Crescent Brands, to sponsor a grand day out to celebrate Earth Day and participate in a day of environmental restoration. We invite you to come out, join in the fun and make a positive impact on the environment!


The workday is scheduled for individuals and groups to come together to remove invasive shrubs at the ComEd Right of Way remnant sedge meadow in Wheeling. This provides an opportunity for volunteers to contribute to the preservation and improvement of this important native sedge meadow and celebrate Earth Day in style.


The workday is scheduled from 9:00am – 2:00pm, with check-in starting at 8:30 am. A complimentary lunch from Marco's Pizza and presentations from State Senator Julie Morrison and Illinois Representative Mary Beth Canty will begin starting at noon.


The sedge meadow is located in Wheeling, across the street from Crescent Brands, 100 west Willow Road in Wheeling Illinois, see the download-able map.  Parking, check-in, restroom facilities and lunch are located at the Crescent Brands facility.


We ask everyone attending to please click here to register to participate.  We kindly request attendees to come dressed appropriately in fully-covered shoes and clothing, and to bring along gloves if available. The sedge meadow can be wet so if you have water proof boots, bring them along. Work tools, additional gloves and water will be available on site. For those parking a car, please download this waiver, fill it out and bring it with you. One per car.


In case of inclement weather, this page will have updated information.


Thank You for your participation and helping us make a difference. Remember, there is no Planet B.
