November-December eco calendar

Activies in Glen Ellyn and the Chicago area

November 26 - Glen Ellyn's Board of Trustees reviews bids for electrical aggregation, including green power (mostly wind) and sources that contain the usual mix of coal and nuclear energy sources. Some residents have expressed a desire for green power, others have said "no, we want lowest price." The actual difference may be a mere fraction of a penny. We shall see.

Getting outdoors this winter:

Glen Ellyn Park District work days continue through the winter. According to Renae Frigo, park district naturalist, the next work day is on Dec. 8 and will most likely be clearing more buckthorn. Next year, work may move to other small neighborhood parks (Danby, Ackerman, & Glen Ellyn Manor) in addition to Churchill. The schedule is pending.
