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.
We have a great opportunity to help maintain this beautiful park and learn about native plants while we work.

Jan and other experienced members will be there to help you learn the native plants and the weeds.
What to bring
Sturdy shoes, gloves and a hat. Sunscreen, insect repellant, tarps, plastic buckets. Pruners or loppers. Your favorite weeding tool.
