The Friends of Busse Woods is a volunteer group working with the Forest Preserves of Cook County, focused on protecting, preserving, and restoring natural communities. Located in Elk Grove Village, Busse Woods is one of the richest and most diverse natural areas in the Preserves.
Our volunteers have been working since 2008 to improve biodiversity and combat climate change. All year long, in all types of weather, our hearty and enthusiastic group meets twice monthly to give back to our environment and enjoy good company. New volunteers are always welcome, see our Volunteer Page for more information.
