Loyola Dunes Restoration

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

I looked at this place and saw America. I knew this guy was able to identify America by its plants. …I didn’t want to live another day without knowing whether I was in America.

– Gerould Wilhelm, quoted in A Natural History of the Chicago Region by Joel Greenberg, p.33
