BACT Oaktober Fest
January 2020 – (Barrington Hills Life)
Mother Nature was on our side for a beautiful fall Oaktober Fest family planting day at Far Field Nature Preserve, located at the corner of Lake Cook and Old Sutton Roads in Barrington Hills, IL. For the 4th annual Oaktober Fest, 150 participants joined together to plant 75 native trees and shrubs on the northern edge of the property. This is part of our effort with the Chicago Region Trees Initiative to remove and replace woody invasive species such as buckthorn.
