Barrington Greenway Initiative continues progress

Our recent collaborative efforts include:

  • 3,000 Pennsylvania sedges planted at Cuba Road in the recently restored oak savanna. CFC volunteers, Lake County Forest Preserve and Barrington Middle School—Prairie Campus Planet Heroes Conservation Club worked together to plant the sedges.
  • Wetland sedge plugs planted at Flint Creek Savanna by CFC volunteers and Friends of the Forest Preserves.
  • Restoration, control and eradication of invasive plants at Spring Creek Forest Preserve. CFC volunteers and Friends of the Forest Preserves removed reed canary grass, buckthorn, dame’s rocket and garlic mustard.
