Chicago Tribune Feature – North Barrington Eton Park

ENCAP, Inc. was recently featured in an April 5, 2016 publication of the Chicago Tribune, regarding our involvement with a restoration plan for North Barrington’s Eton Park woodlands.

ENCAP’s Maintenance Coordinator/Ecologist, Samantha Melton, was interviewed for the article, and provided input on the current conditions, challenges, and proposed restoration plans that aim to return Eton Park to pre-settlement conditions.

Work is expected to begin late in April or early in May. Melton explained the proposed restoration process, involving the inventory of plant species, the treatment of invasive and non-native species, and the installation and procurement of native flora.

ENCAP Inc. is working with Nancy Schumm, an environmental consultant with Schumm Consulting in Lake Barrington, and the North Barrington Village Board. You can read the full article by clicking here.
