1.3-mile DeKalb Nature Trail restoration under way
DeKALB – If you walk down the Nature Trail, you might see the yellow tags still on the hundreds of shrubs crews planted May 2.
The efforts represent much of the restoration that ComEd, the DeKalb Park District and the DeKalb County Forest Preserve have planned in response to the public outcry last year over ComEd clearing taller trees from around the power lines. The 1.3-mile trail runs from North First Street near Timber Trail to Sycamore Road near Greenwood Acres Drive in DeKalb.
“What we did is a sustainable plan,” DeKalb Park District Executive Director Cindy Capek said. “The plant material that was put in was selected to work with the transmission lines but also to beautify the Nature Trail.”
