Save Ackerman Woods sign now

We hereby declare that the Village of Glen Ellyn and the Glen Ellyn Park District shall immediately halt any and all plans for the destruction of Ackerman Woods.

Over 340 trees in the woods at Ackerman Park are scheduled for destruction this spring. This area is between Lenox, Riford and St. Charles roads in Glen Ellyn. Experts from the Morton Arboretum and other organizations recently visited Ackerman Woods and they agreed that despite years of neglect and no maintenance, the woods have been largely, and surprisingly spared from invasives and non-natives. The trees are 95\% native and with wetlands bordering the north and south, this is unique property. The trees have long served an important purpose in water mediation and are themselves the remnants of the original grove of walnuts and elms known as Babcock Grove, the settlement that became Glen Ellyn. More information about this issue is available at www.saveackermanwoods.com.

We demand that these woods be permanently preserved.
