HLR FEATURED IN DOWNERS GROVE VIDEO
In honor of National Pollinator Week, we share a wonderful video created by the Village of Downers Grove about our natural area maintenance and bioswale restoration work throughout the Village.
Since 2014, Hampton, Lenzini and Renwick, Inc. (HLR) has partnered with the Village of Downers Grove to develop and implement a natural area management and maintenance plan. The Village understands the importance of converting areas of turf grass back to their natural state and the many environmental benefits these natural areas provide – including attracting more pollinators! Reversing the decline of our pollinator populations is vital to the health of our global ecosystem; with loss of habitat one cause of the decline, the Village’s commitment to this program plays an important role in helping our pollinators.
The video below is one way the Village educates and informs its residents about this vital program. Check out our awesome restoration crew at work and narration by HLR Environmental Scientist Kristin Dykema!
