Torch and Keystone Clubs visit Bemis Woods

November 6, 2010 12:10 PM
On Saturday, November 6, the Torch and KeystIMAG0279one Clubs of General Wood and Little Village Boys & Girls Clubs traveled to Bemis Woods Forest Preserve for a Service Learning Project.  Members worked together with the Chicago ICO (Inner City Outings) to decrease the number of Buckthorn and Honeysuckle trees, which are non-native to our environment.
In addition to reducing these invasive trees, members also roasted marshmallows over a bonfire and participated in team-building games throughout the afternoon.
