Greater DuPage Chapter Event

Handouts have been prepared for a self-guided tour of this two-acre property, about half of which is native plantings, including the woods. There are about 200 different species.

The native project was started about 18 years ago, so is becoming quite mature. There are both tall grass and short grass areas and some extensive woodlands. Also, there is about a quarter mile of right-of-way native areas that stretch up and down the street.

Dave Wilcox invites you to stay as long as you like, so bring a chair and a sack lunch, listen while Dave offers tips on starting your own native areas.

“The more they see, the more time they spend, the better they will be prepared.” Dave Wilcox

Park along the north side of the street. Restroom is available in the basement.

If you are unvaccinated be sure to bring your mask and keep a safe distance if you are hanging out after the tour.
