The summer 2019 issue of The Twig is The Stories Issue, highlighting stewardship stories from several Sycamore preserves. Stewardship transforms habitat and the landscape in powerful ways, sometimes very visible through forest plantings, and other times on the tiny level of insects and fungi. Restoring habitat is a critical part of Sycamore's mission to protect land for forever. Thanks to the generosity of our members and volunteers, we're able to accomplish more every year.

The editor of The Twig is Abby Henkel. The designer is Danielle Lucas. For questions, please contact Abby at
