Avison Young’s Global Day of Giving Chicago team helps Friends of the Forest Preserves

Avison Young recently held its Global Day of Giving–an annual event in which each of its offices across five countries spend the day giving back to their communities through the charity of their choice, in their respective markets.


The firm’s Chicago offices worked with Friends of the Forest Preserves to clear underbrush and remove the invasive species at Forest Glen Woods, just off I-94.

More than 100 Avison Young Chicago team members removed an estimated 15,500 square feet of Buckthorn and at least 50 trees ranging from 1-inch diameter at breast height and 9-inch dbh, and they built four large bonfires.
