Southeast Youth Corps on Choo Choo
Here's a short clip of students from the Normal Park Museum Magnet Schools mountain biking club. We asked "What's your favorite trail to ride in Stringer's Ridge Park?" (Just after we stopped filming, one suggested a park upgrade: "Install an escalator to get to the top, so you only have to ride down!")
Such a great turnout in the chilly weather. Thank you for attending and a big thank you to the CSO and all our wonderful volunteers!

Kudzu is creeping across the Stringer’s Ridge Pump
Track, trailhead, and beautiful native wild flower
meadows while smothering out shorter plants and shrubs. We need your help to defend Stringer's from this invasive plant! A morning work session (9am-12pm) on Saturday, August 26
will be the kick-off of a multi-year kudzu management project.


In this initial phase we will reduce the sprawl and untangle vines to determine the scale of the infestation. Patience (rather than brute strength) is required for this fun and educational volunteer opportunity. We will be wading into tall vegetation with steep slopes and uneven footing.

We need about 15 volunteers. Please sign up here:

After the work session, stay to enjoy some educational booths, a guided hike, and local history at the “Discover Stringers Ridge” public event happening until 2pm (details:

Please keep this in mind when you take a rescue animal home. They are so thankful but need time to adjust to their new home. May seem they are being bratty but they just need some time and love so they can realize it's their home too.
