Forays are group monitoring events that present an opportunity to learn about Plants of Concern protocol, visit interesting sites, and be in the field with experienced staff and volunteers.
All monitors must be an approved Chicago Botanic Garden volunteer with a signed confidentiality form on file in order to participate. If you haven't already submitted these forms, please contact POC staff and we will assist in getting you the proper paperwork.
Dress for the weather and for walking off-trail (long pants, sturdy shoes or boots). Sunscreen and bug spray may be useful. Bring water and a lunch. Additional information will be sent about a week before the foray!
*We assume you will attend if you register. Many of these forays have a cap on the number of participants, so please let us know if you have to cancel.
