POSTPONED – Help the Planet: Prairie Planting & River Clean Up Event
April 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Take time to take care of the planet and have fun outside with your family planting prairie plants and cleaning up the river!
At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, we will:
- Learn about the prairie from Dr. Gregory Ruthig, biology professor at North Central College, plant prairie plants and help weed out invasive plants.
- Talk about how The Conservation Foundation helps keep our waterways clean and take time to protect the planet by cleaning up the river near North Central College’s prairie.
- Teach families how we can work together to positively impact the lives of bees, fish and other species that rely on the prairie and clean waterways to live!
- Express our gratitude for the creatures, the prairie and the river.
What You Need to Bring
We’ll provide the prairie plants, tools for planting and everything we’ll need to clean up the river. Please wear close-toed shoes and dress for the weather.
Where and When
We’ll meet in the southwest corner of the parking lot outside the football stadium. Please see map below. The event will take place from 10:00-11:30 a.m.
This is a great way to work together to make a positive impact on the environment right here in our community!

About the club
Inside Out Club DuPage (formerly I Support Community) started in September 2012 after seeing the overwhelming need for children to possess a strong foundation in character and community. Our mission is to develop kids with character inside and out.
Inside Out Club opportunities
The Inside Out Club (IOC) is designed to engage kids and families in as many of these four opportunities as possible as they practice character skills and volunteer. Working with teachers, volunteers, parents, school administrators and outside organizations, the Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 1,400 students and their families. IOC focuses on DuPage County and its needs.
What does Inside Out mean? We work to help students develop the character skills necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community. Lessons are based on the foundations of social and emotional learning, which helps people recognize and manage emotions, develop empathy for others, maintain cooperative relationships and make responsible decisions.
