This project will improve Dirksen Nature Park to enhance visitors’ experiences of Northwest ecosystems including: restoring a forested wetland and installing a boardwalk; restoring an oak savannah and installing an overlook; and building two nature play areas. Metro Council previously invested $1 million in the acquisition of this property through a capital grant, which closed Dec. 15, 2010. In addition to the acquisition, other deliverables included management and education plans. Both of these plans were developed and approved.  More about this project >
