The month of October has designated October Oak Awareness Month in Illinois.  Individuals, organizations, communities, park districts, forest preserves, and  public or private landowners or managers can play an important role in celebrating oaks and oak ecosystems across Illinois throughout the month of October, or OAKtober.

Every October, the Village of Westmont Forestry department and Westmont Ecology Club students participate in Oaktober by planting Oak trees at various schools in Westmont.
