Water Willow Planting on the DuPage Saturday, 7/14


Recommended Posts

Sorry for the last minute notice, but with the unpredictability of water levels and weather, conditions are now right to get some water willows planted this weekend.

 We will meet at Garys Mill Rd. off of Rt. 59 which is just south of Rt. 38 in West Chicago @ 8am. Saturday July 14. 

 We have permission to park at Currier  Elementary School at the west end of their parking lot which is just east of the river over the bridge on the south side of street ( on Garys Mill Rd.-See google map)

I will bring dibble bars, gloves, the plants and floating blowup boat.  There will be 11 flats.   We will be planting just north of the bridge. It has been predicted to rain sometime that day.

The work isn't very difficult, bring waders and some gloves and be a part of the habitat restoration of the DuPage River. With enough help, we should be done in just a few hours. If you can help, post here and let us know.

The rain shower we received early Saturday morning was all we needed to help cool things off for this years water willow planting on the Dupage River.  13 ISA members volunteered their time and elbow grease at this year's planting that took place at the Garys Mill Rd bridge near Warrenville.  ISA members, with the help of Jessie DiMartini, planted 11 flats of water willows and other water plants.  ISA members joined for a hearty breakfast following the activities.  Thank you to all that helped out. Here are some pictures from the event.  Hopefully others can supplement with photos they took.
