Get down and dirty and help Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension Service care for this Prairie Sampler, which is located in front of the Nature Center. They need help with weeding, pulling tall goldenrod, trimming out woody plants and caring for newly acquired plants. Children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult, and registration is required by Sept. 19. Bring gloves, hand clippers, kneelers if you like and dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. For more information, contact Thorn Creek Nature Center by phone, or email or stop in the nature center between noon and 4 p.m. on Friday through Sunday. Visit the website at
