  The Preserves at McDonald Woods - Lindenhurst, IL
 
 
MTAN installed Native prairie seed and cover crop and the banks were secured with erosion-control matting.
 
       
 
The current seed-bank was allowed to grow and the Cattails were herbicided. Native shoreline plants were installed afterward for better results and less long-term maintenance.
 
       
 
Less than one seasons growth the shoreline plants are blooming and so are the Black-eyed Susans in the Prairie.
