The Carol Stream Park District has honored Jan by giving the park her name. We have a great opportunity to help with weeding out quack grass and other invasives in this beautiful park and learn about native plants while we work. Two more sessions will be scheduled later in the summer. For more information about Jan Smith Park, including photos, click here. Please join us!
