Default Volunteering

Just wondering if anyone here does volunteer work for any of IL's states parks ? I sent a letter to their headquarters and I got back some information. It seems my only options are to help clear recreational hiking paths. I was kind of hopping in doing something like working along side the DNR for cleanups and perhaps habbitat reconstruction. So if there are some volunteers here please give me some advice and if you could let me know how you help the states parks.

I think there might be something in the works at the State Park in Kirkland, this spring. I noticed a couple of log jams forming again. The Shabbona sportsmans club and the Smallmouth alliance usally lend a hand. Both clubs work with the DNR when needed.

Shabbona will be having ( Rockfest ) again this year. On a given Saturday, usally in January. They cut a large hole in the ice, and drop a couple tons of rock down them. Volenteers are needed to load, and unload the wagon, as they are brought onto the ice.

I do a clean-up every September in the Kankakee River State Park for the ISA. The Lt. Governor's office has a weekend in Sept. designated as "It's Our River Day" that involves lots of things you are looking for.
