Scout Ryan Michalesko completes his Eagle Project at
the Flaglands Preserve
Ryan (center) is part of Scout Troop 4, out of Murphysboro, and is sponsored by The Saint Andrew Church Knights of Columbus. Ryan developed the plan, secured materials, and coordinated 25 scouts plus adults to help with installing two benches for visitors to the preserve.
Green Earth holds a volunteers workday the third Saturday of each month (check our events calendar for upcoming times and locations), but one Saturday a month simply isn't enough! We are often approached by student groups, community groups, and Green Earth trail users about hosting special workdays. Sometimes a group is looking for a good cause they can get behind, or someone sees a problem on a trail and they want to be part of the solution - whatever the reason we are happy to accommodate. Check out our photo gallery for more pictures of Green Earth's impressive volunteer force.
