To commemorate Martin Luther King’s Memorial Day on Monday, Cook County Forest Reserve hosts volunteer activities in many parts of the Forest Reserve.
Opportunities include habitat restoration projects and voluntary debris cleanup.
“The lessons Dr. King left us about the need for fairness and the power of the community are a transcendental gift for all Americans. Every day we can choose to make a difference. “Tony Preckwinkle, President of Cook County, attending an event at the Sand Ridge Nature Center on Monday, said.
