About the event

Every year, Eastern Illinois University, asks their incoming freshman class to participate in a fall semester service day called Jumpstart.  This demonstrates how important it is to volunteer in the community.

Grand Prairie Friends participates by providing a volunteer activity at Warbler Ridge for Jumpstart.    Grand Prairie Friends volunteers join in to assist the students.  This year, we will be cutting invasive trees that are impacing our native tree plantings in Warbler Bottoms.   

GPF Volunteers should meet at Warbler Crossing at 10am for a briefing before the students arrive at 10:30am.  The work session will be from 10:30am-12:30pm.  This activity overlaps with our regular Invasive Strike Team day the third Saturday of the month.

GPF Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, long pants and gloves.   Bug spray and sun screen recommended.   

Drinks and snacks will be provided.
