Event Details

Join the Outdoor Adventure Club in cleaning the Middlefork!

Get your hands dirty for an afternoon of volunteering with Champaign Outdoors at Middle Fork Forest Preserve. We have partnered with the Champaign County Forest Preserve District to help clean up an old farmstead site at Point Pleasant.

Middle Fork River Forest Preserve contains 1,702 acres composed of old hardwood timber, reforested lowlands, grassy meadows, and in-progress prairie restorations. Rich in trails, Middle Fork contains one of the region’s premier Waterfowl Management Areas, and it is also home to a favorite camping area, the Harry L. Swartz Campground. It is also Illinois’ first International Dark Sky Park!

Questions? Please contact info@champaignoutdoors.com or Emily Williams at ewilliams@ccfpd.org

We will meet at the Maintenance Building in Middle Fork Forest Preserve.
