The Champaign County Forest Preserve is more than a friend to the Salt Fork River. The Salt Fork River is actually part of the Champaign County Forest Preserve at Homer Lake. Activites of the CCFP have an impact on the Salt Fork River. One activity that indirectly affects the river is the Trail Stewardship Program. There will be a workshop about the program January 23 from 10 AM -Noon. There is more information on their web site: http://www.ccfpd.org/index.html
Invasive species have become a serious threat to all our natural areas from prairies to woodlands to riparian corridors. It will only be the efforts of people willing to take the time to commit to helping eradicate invasives that will finally make a difference. Please consider being a steward to a Homer Lake trail and in doing so becoming a Salt Fork Friend.
Hope to at least see you at the workshop. Preregistration required.
