About Friends of the Green Bay TrailThe Green Bay Trail is an extraordinary community asset available to all to experience and enjoy. Mission Statement. We are environmental stewards of the Green Bay Trail. Our mission is to promote a healthy natural corridor for the well-being of individuals and surrounding communities. We create and maintain healthy habitat along the Green Bay Trail by removing invasive species and planting natives. Core Beliefs. We believe: • In creating, restoring and protecting the health of the natural habitat to mitigate threats of climate change; • In the importance of connecting individuals and communities with nature and its beauty to enrich their mental health. 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.
