Illinois Prairie Path Professional Review and Guide

"The Illinois Prairie Path (IPP) began as the vision of one woman, naturalist May Theilgaard Watts. In 1963 the Chicago Tribune published her letter to the editor describing the potential for an unused railway right-of-way to become a footpath lined with native plants. Her vision became the vision of numerous volunteers who worked to make this dream a reality."
