A Message from The Mayor:
Sign Up for the Riverwoods Nature Walk!
The last few months have been hard for all of us. It’s time to get outside and take advantage of some of what our village has to offer.
On August 8 at 10:00 a.m., the Village of Riverwoods will join with naturalists from the Brushwood Center to conduct a nature walk on the streets of Riverwoods. The exact route is still to be determined but should begin and end at the Village Hall. Steve Zimmerman, the Village ecologist, will join us on our walk.
During the walk, we will identify plants and trees in a healthy woodland, invasive plants that should be removed, and other plants commonly growing in and around our yards. Bring your smartphones to make this an interactive experience. Information will be provided about ways you can improve the health of the woodland on your property and about Village programs that are available to assist you in doing so.
Registration will be open to 15 people (children 12 and under are welcome if supervised by adults). This will allow participants to hear our guides while still providing enough space for safe social distancing. We may have additional groups, if there is sufficient interest.

Take advantage of this great opportunity to learn about our woodland, and have some fun.
