Sponsored by Chicago Parks Foundation, on June 1st, 2019 we had 10 energetic volunteers mulch 19 trees in front of the Loyola Park Fieldhouse. #IYPD2019
The high school students were doing a student service project and a few members of the Loyola Park Advisory Council were in attendance. Thanks to our Park Staff for helping coordinate the event!
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.
Did you know that every Halloween the Loyola Park Field house hosts a Halloween party with games, entertainment and of course, candy?! Members of the LPAC Advisory Council are on hand to help run the games. Take a look at some of these photos provided by the Chicago Park District!
