Panfish Park Tree Planting and Educational Initiative


The Village of Glen Ellyn and the Glen Ellyn Park District recently collaborated on a tree planting and educational initiative thanks to donations from the Morton Arboretum and DuPage Foundation.

Morton Arboretum donated 13 trees that were recently planted within Panfish Park. In addition, thanks to a $10,000 grant provided by the Glen Ellyn Fund of the DuPage Foundation to the Village, an additional 19 trees were also planted at the park. The Glen Ellyn Park District also utilized a portion of the funds to develop a self-guided interactive tree walking tour and GIS map, where participants can scan a QR code on signs at the tree to learn about its species.

Glen Ellyn has had a longstanding dedication to caring for and enhancing its trees within the community. As part of the Village’s ongoing Central Business District Streetscape and Utility Improvement Project, the Village is planting more than 120 new trees, nearly doubling the number within its Downtown area.

Thanks to these efforts, and the contributions of the DuPage Foundation and Morton Arboretum, Glen Ellyn will continue its legacy as an award-winning Tree City.
