We were thrilled to participate again in this year's edition of #ChicagoRiverDay in Blue Island! Park District staff and volunteers were on hand to help plant 2 large native perennial gardens at Blue Island's waterfall park. Great work everyone!#ChicagoRiverDay in Blue Island was a HUGE success! On Saturday, 30 volunteers planted more than 100 native perennials in 2 gardens at our waterfall park, with mulch and even more plants on the way.

Lakeshore Landscaping, Fay's Point Marina, Blue Island Chamber of Commerce, Blue Island Park District, ACI Enterprises Inc, Rock Island Public House, BIOS FARM, Blue Island Beer Company, Council Oak Montessori School, Blue Island Public Library, City of Blue Island, Valerie Kehoe, Tom Mantel, Earl Summers, and of course, all of the individual donors and volunteers who made this possible. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
