Friends of Wicker Park,

On Saturday, April 14 from 9am – noon, 50 volunteers mulched all the trees in Wicker Park – 4.02 acres of trees.

This GREEN EVENT ensured the health of all our Park’s trees, helps conserve water, and demonstrated a great neighborhood collaborative spirit. Charles Wicker would be PROUD.
