Willoughby Farms: Working farm & conservation reserve

Standard

The Collinsville Area Recreation District (CARD) has created over 3 miles  of hiking trails along the the woodland and prairie and is working to restore the land as part of its conservation mission.

Willoughby Farms need volunteers to help remove invasive species and restore the Illinois woodland, savanna, and prairie. Volunteers have also helped plant and harvest the gardens so the produce can be donated to area food pantries. Check out dates and times by stopping into the Kimmel Leadership office or wait for the weekly events post.
