Loyola Park Huddle for 100 with the Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears Huddle for 100 at Loyola Park, Sept. 8th, 2019
Loyola Park made 100 minutes count with close to 50 volunteers picking up litter, microplastics and mulching trees in the park on a beautiful Saturday clean-up. Groups from Family Matters and Junior League participated as well as some hard-working Chicago Bears fans. We even had a few players help out: Brandon McGowan (former Bears safety) and Brent Novoselsky (former Bears tight end). 
Thanks to the Chicago Bears, the Chicago Parks Foundation and the staff at Loyola Park for helping make this happen.
Whose park? Our park!

Loyola EcoLab Outdoor Class in Dunes

Students from Loyola University Chicago’s Institute for Environmental Sustainability (IES) practiced field ecology sampling techniques in the Loyola Dunes on Sunday, September 10th.

Among other things, the dunes natural area serves important educational and scientific purposes as an outdoor classroom.  Some students measured plant species abundance and diversity inside 1-meter square frames called quadrats (white plastic piping) that were placed at intervals along a transect line.  Others used insect nets to sweep across the dunes vegetation and collect invertebrate samples.
