OAKtober Tree Fest Is Coming
  On Oct. 5, Evanston will celebrate trees, especially oaks, and becoming a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat. There will be abundant tree information and many tree experts to talk with, as well as kids’ activities and interactive, educational booths on restoring wildlife habitat, migratory birds, taking climate action and more. Native shrubs will be given away while supplies last.

OAKtober takes place from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Oct. 5 at the Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd.
