The community is invited to the Rosemont Preserve Restoration Day on Saturday, July 8 from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. to help protect the natural habitat at Rosemont Preserve. Volunteers will be working on the trail, weeding the demonstration garden and removing invasive plants posing a fire danger to the Preserve!
