Loyola Dunes Restoration

Welcome to Loyola Dunes, a restored dune area and urban oasis in Rogers Park on Chicago’s far north side.

“(Sand reeds) are for me voices of a future, testimony of the power of plants to assert themselves against artifact and to resurrect the nature of place.”

– Richard Manning, Grassland: The History, Biology, Politics and Promise of an American Prairie
