October Buckthorn Barbecue Cancelled

(Originally scheduled for Wednesday, October 7, 2020)

Due to the uncertainty of achieving Illinois’s benchmarks for holding gatherings of more than 50 people by fall, we have regrettably cancelled this year’s Buckthorn Barbecue. We will now focus our energy on our trail restoration work and will keep you up to date on the Trail’s status, new plantings and blooms.


The 2019 Buckthorn Barbecue, featuring Geoffrey Baer, was a huge success. Here are some photos from that event.
