Currently, we’ve partnered with the Red Oak Rain Garden to raise funds for project improvements. Joining us is the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, who will match every donor dollar with three more dollars.

GARDEN IMPROVEMENT PLANS: Your gift goes towards garden improvements that benefit both human and wildlife visitors. Plans are to build a boardwalk so people can easily move from one side of the garden to the other. Additionally, early-blooming plants will be established to provide welcome nourishment for birds and pollinators returning after winter. Below is a rendering of the completed project.
