Acorn Round Up Fall 2017
Collect acorns this fall for TLC!
TLC began collecting acorns from individuals in 2007. Since then, TLC used the acorns for Project Quercus plantings, for nurseries to use for our plant sales, and to grow our own oak trees.
TLC encourages individuals to begin collecting acorns for this year’s Acorn Round Up. TLC's Acorn Round Up is a great way to get your kids, friends, neighbors and students involved in increasing our oak tree population in McHenry County! If you don't have oaks on your property, there are many other places you can go to collect. Look for areas that have been maintained like parks, churches, schools, golf courses, neighbors, etc.
It's always good to have permission, and most people will want to help if you explain the program. Acorns should be identified with a tag and leaf from the tree where they were collected. Acorns can brought to the TLC office within two weeks of collection.
