Event details

Join us for our annual meeting as we look back at the storied 55-year history of Friends of Thorn Creek Woods. Naturalist April Richards will narrate a slide show identifying the movers and the shakers, the Herculean efforts and the milestones of this preservation work. President Penny Chamberlain will conduct a brief business meeting regarding current preservation efforts and the organization’s plans for the future. The afternoon will conclude with attendees sharing memories of how they first discovered Thorn Creek Woods and how they came to be a member of Friends.

The event is open to the public and will be held at Park Forest Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive. It is sponsored by the Jim Marzuki Memorial Fund, established by Friends of Thorn Creek Woods to enhance public programming.  Refreshments will be served.
