Volunteers are invited to Perkins Woods from 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 2 to remove invasive species that compete with native species for sunlight and space. Volunteers should dress for the weather, wear boots, bring water, and meet at the intersection of Grant Street and Bennett Avenue for assignments, etc.

The morning will involve removing buckthorn and honeysuckle, hauling the cut shrubs, meeting friends and neighbors, and enjoying the out-of-doors. No experience is needed; the work goes on, rain or snow or sun. Early signup is requested by contacting Libby Hill at 847-475-2096 or
