Greenbay Trail SOSA (South of South Avenue) Restoration
In partnership with the Village of Glencoe and the Glencoe Park District, the Friends of the Greenbay Trail are now embarking on the next phase of restoration on the Green Bay Trail.  “SOSA” is the area south of South Avenue to the Community Garden.  In January 2018, Park District crews will begin removing the invasive buckthorn to prepare the site for new native trees, shrubs, wildflower, and grasses.
