Long-time member of Wild Ones, Jan Smith, has created a native landscape in a public park which has been described as a native plant museum. The Carol Stream Park District has honored Jan by giving the park her name.
In June our group helped with planting new natives on the berm. This month our focus will be on weeding to give the new plants breathing room. If you can, please bring containers of water for watering plants, your weeding tools, and a tarp or blanket for collecting weeds and/or sitting on during breaks.

Note on parking: There is no parking lot at the park itself. In addition to street parking in the neighborhood, we have permission to use the parking lot at the Heritage Presbyterian Church, which is one block south on Kuhn Rd.
Note on restrooms: There are no restrooms close by. If the need arises, you will have to drive to a gas station or other public facility. Suggestions: The closest gas stations and convenience stores are at County Farm Rd. & Army Trail Rd. There are restrooms at Hampe Park, about 1 mile east on Lies Road.
