If you have not been out to visit the natural areas at Churchill Park (271 St. Charles Road, Glen Ellyn) yet, now is a perfect time to go. So many different plants are in bloom; it's really a spectacular sight. Gold finches were everywhere, joining the butterflies and dragonflies and making the prairie come alive.
"This is really prime time for the park," said Renae Frigo, naturalist for the Glen Ellyn Park District.
It's the perfect place to drop by for a 10 minute walk around the boardwalk, enough time to recharge your brain and take in the sunshine. Or spend a few hours exploring the prairie, ponds, and forest trails. Either way, just get there!
