The Thatcher Woods Savanna Restoration Project will hold a series of Earth Day activities at the Thatcher Woods Pavilion on Saturday, April 22 beginning at 7:30 a.m. with a Woodland Bird Watch led by Jill Anderson, Chicago Audubon Society bird monitor for Thatcher Woods.

There will be a spring clean up in designated areas from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. (bring gloves, bags will be provided) followed by the Hody Coyote Puppet Show given by naturalists Jim Hodapp and Larry Godson, who have been teaching the popular Junior Naturalists classes and Eco-Observation camps at the Oak Park Conservatory for the past fifteen years.

Trailside naturalist Jeanette Lewis will also display the museum’s Red Tail Hawk, a permanent resident at Trailside for the past five years since it lost an eye and could not be released back into its native habitat. Earth Day activities will end at noon with a woodland wildflower walk led by Jeanette Lewis and Thatcher Woods steward Victor Guarino.

Entrance to Thatcher Woods Pavilion is on Chicago Avenue, immediately west of Thatcher Avenue. For more information call 708 848-7175.
