Travel Tips for Glen Ellyn
I spent huge parts of my early childhood there in Duane Street with my Dad's parents. Later they moved to the condo and I used to sit on the balcony with my Daddy's aunt, Eleanor. She with the sunglasses that covered her face almost completely. She was blind, almost unable to walk and had a pacemaker which was easy to be seen, as she was so skinny. When staying at my Grandparents' I used to stay in a room with her, and till I fell asleep I watched the pictures on the wall and the bottles of Holy Water someone brought her from Lourdes.
Anyway, sitting on the balcony with her was incredible, as she always ... and I mean ALWAYS ... and everyday at 5 p.m. she drank a glass of gin. Five minutes later my Grandma - her sister-in-law - came out, in sorrow ... as the hospital had called ... again ... to ask if Eleanor was alright. They say she did that ever since way back her living in Santa Barbara, California.
Willowbrook, rehab center
One of Willowbrook's goals is to provide care and treatment to DuPage County's native and migrant wildlife. Every year, qualified and dedicated staff, with the help of trained volunteers, tend to thousands of wild animals brought to the center for care. Only native species are accepted for treatment, but Willowbrook attempts to refer individuals with nonnative animals to appropriate organizations. Once an animal's health is restored, it is released back into its habitat in a DuPage County forest preserve.
A self-guided tour, Willowbrook's Nature Trail provides an opportunity to learn about wildlife and the prairie, savanna, woodland and wetland habitats of the county. A half-mile outer loop and a shorter inner loop travel through 40 acres of restored habitats complete with interpretive signs and inviting benches.
