Campaign to Enhance Keay Nature Learning Center

The Problem

Our wish is to improve and support the Keay Nature Learning Center in Wilmette and increase the use of this valuable community resource.

Our Plan

Our campaign is in support of a little-known local Park District facility called Keay Nature Learning Center. The park is underutilized by our community. The environment is mostly healthy, but there are a number of invasive plant species which impact the native landscape. Working with the Park District, our group will work to eradicate native plant species without damaging the environment and to make the Nature Center more attractive to animals and people alike. One idea we have is to build and paint birdhouses to donate to Nature Center. These may help to attract and house a wider variety of birds, and they have the added benefit of being pleasing to people. We hope that the publicity from this effort will draw attention - and visitors - to the Nature Center.
