Be an Earth Hero by helping to plant over 100 native trees and shrubs in the Douglas-Hart forest. Reclaim the land for Illinois wildlife. Save the day!
Douglas-Hart’s Earth Day Festival is a chance for all ages to volunteer and help the planet. Teams will be heading out at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m., to work as long as each volunteer chooses. Leaders will be ready to equip you with the tools and skills you need, and to work alongside young volunteers. Bring your own gloves and shovel if you have them.
This event is perfect for all ages. Individuals, families, scouts, and groups are encouraged to participate! Registration for volunteers who plan to attend is appreciated, especially from groups. Don’t forget to arrive a few minutes early to sign in at the front desk!
Volunteers and visitors alike can enjoy snacks, crafts, games, and other Earth Day activities. Shop the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” rummage sale and other guest vendors. Participate in the plant trade, or purchase native plants grown in the Douglas-Hart greenhouse.

We will read three memoirs written by women, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, Blue Nights by Joan Didion, and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. The focus of the class meetings will be discussion preceded by a short lecture. Topics of discussion will inlcude the blurring of boundaries between fiction and memoir, the role that gender plays in the writing of memoir, and the various ethical issues involved in writing about personal matters. We will also talk about writing your own memoir.
