Heather Venhaus will lead off with Landscape Solutions: Upcycling Our Urban Ecosystems. She advocates planning the whole project , whether an addition, a single home, or a multiple-building development before work begins to streamline the work & assure minimal ecological damage & maximum eco-friendly outcomes consistent with intended uses. It includes many factors, including native plant landscaping according to recently published qualifications for LEED points. Exciting stuff!

Our First Tree Planting – Success!

Doctors Park Friends is working to increase woodland area in the park to support migratory birds on their journeys north and south each year along Lake Michigan. We recently made great strides in our efforts to reforest the area at the top of the service drive, formerly Picnic Area 1. This area is located on the park side of the ravine that separates Schlitz Audubon Nature Center from the park – part of a larger, and incredibly valuable woodland area that straddles the properties.

About 35 volunteers planted 100 trees on Saturday, November 1st. Under the direction of Brian Russart and his team, we now have the start of a lovely grove of trees and shrubs. See more photos.

You can still give to the tree fund. With funds available we can work with Parks and purchase trees at a quantity discount.  A gift of $25 buys one tree and the opportunity to tag it with your name! Learn more.

 

Thanks to a grant from Robert W. Baird we can commit to purchase this first planting of trees.
