The Grant Park Conservancy had a very productive Earth Day, 2017 mulching hundreds of trees in Arrigo Park in the UIC community. Urban Prairie Waldorf School did an amazing job! We had almost 200 volunteers come out. Luis Carlos Beltrán, a UIC PhD student gave an informative talk to the 7th and 8th graders about his forest restoration research in Costa Rica and Mexico. Thank you to Mike Brown and Shirron Molette from the Chicago Park District as well.
