About Friends of the Green Bay Trail

Friends of the Green Bay Trail logo

The Friends of the Green Bay Rail is a Glencoe based non-profit with no paid staff.  For more than 10 years , FGBT’s volunteers, comprised of north shore residents, have been restoring the trail’s natural savanna ecosystem for the enjoyment of all. It has become a prized recreational asset.  Volunteers are our lifeblood. With their assistance , thousands of buckthorn trees have been removed, more than 600 native trees and shrubs planted, and thousands of native plants installed. 

The trail has been certified as an Illinois Butterfly Monitoring site as as a Monarch Waystation. Its Monarch Hatchery is open each summer and is located on the trail just south of the Mary St. trail entrance.  FGBT sponsors regular monthly trail work days and numerous community programs annually. For more information visit our website, gbtrail.org and Facebook.
