Volunteer Gardening Work Days
Volunteer Gardening Work Days, Thursdays 8 – 11 a.m.
The Museum of Transportation has native wildflower gardens, prairie gardens, pollinator gardens, and natural areas. These add beauty as well as much needed habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Volunteers of all experience levels are needed. We need help to pull weeds, install new plantings, water, mulch, and remove honeysuckle. Experienced gardeners are needed to mentor those who are new to gardening and supervise large groups.
Currently, we host volunteer work days every Thursday from 8 – 11 a.m., but location may vary so it’s good to call ahead or text (847) 289-9760. Other work days may be added over time, so please check Events Calendar – Museum of Transportation.
Volunteers are asked to dress for the weather — Long sleeves (with short sleeves underneath), long pants, hat, durable close-toed shoes, eye protection (it’s fine to wear glasses) when trimming, a bucket, leather gloves, hand spade or pitchfork for digging weeds, a full water bottle.
