Friends of the Parks and Peoples Gas Build Bridges at Dunning-Read Conservation Area

CHICAGO, IL – This week, employees from Peoples Gas joined Friends of the Parks in restoring and anchoring two bridges at the Dunning-Read Conservation Area, which were damaged as a result of this year's heavy rainstorms.

The bridge work is a prelude to a larger restoration and clean-up effort due to take place on Saturday, July 13 when the two groups join forces again at the northwest side nature reserve for a massive clean-up. Volunteers will spend the day cleaning and restoring the areas around several nature trails open to the public that meander through 23 acres of protected meadows, woodlands and wetlands.

"We welcome the unique construction and restoration expertise and environmental support Peoples Gas employees bring to the Dunning-Read project. We hope to attract other volunteer groups to support the massive protected site during our Stewardship Days each month," said Mary Eileen Sullivan, director of volunteers for Friends of the Parks.

Friends of the Parks invites other local groups and volunteers like Peoples Gas to join them on the 2nd Saturday of each month, rain or shine, to help restore this nature oasis on the northwest side of Chicago.

Gavin McCarty, Peoples Gas employee and Friends of the Parks board member and his son, who are joining in on the Saturday morning clean-up efforts said, "Volunteering to restore the bridges and spruce up the nature trails is an excellent way to protect the environment, support the local community and enjoy the outdoors."

After their joint clean-up effort on Saturday, Peoples Gas will continue to work with Friends of the Parks to build a kiosk, which will be used to educate the public about the unique natural environments in the conservation area to attract more visitors to the urban retreat.
