PART 1 (Watch this video before the one below it).


As we already covered in the above video, the Glen Ellyn Park District has moved forward with a plan to save some of the last remaining oak trees in Glen Ellyn. These trees also happen to be some of DuPage County’s last oak trees protected from demolition and structure replacement. We gained inspiring momentum last year when Governor Bruce Rauner declared the month of October “Oaktober” in an effort to raise awareness for this keystone species and it’s slow and perilous elimination. The elimination of the oak tree will also result in a slow collapse of our local ecosystem. It is more important than ever to find a local oak tree and plant one of its acorn in your yard! (You can also attend a forest restoration workday with us!)
