Rep. Karen Yarbrough chided the new county board president, Todd Stroger, on the campaign trail because the Forest Preserve had less litter on the River Forest side of the river than on the Maywood side.

This is true because volunteeers, not county employees, make an organized effort to keep the Forest Preserve cleaned-up. The county neglects both sides of the river equally.


  • The Thatcher group had worked on the west side of the river at 'Nates meadow' near the soccer field south of North Ave and also a little at NE corner of Washington and First. These would be really nice areas if buckthorn were killed.
