Elgin resident Richard Carlson points to erosion and accumulation of rocks in the area where Poplar and Willow creeks meet. Last month's heavy storms accelerated the damage.

Members of the Elgin chapter of Izaak Walton League of America are determined to stabilize the banks of Willow Creek -- they just need to find support for the project, they said. About 20 people met Tuesday night to discuss Willow Creek, a tributary of Poplar Creek in Elgin's southeast side.
