A groundbreaking Wednesday launches construction on a 5,000-square-foot nature center at Knoch Knolls park to be built not far from the confluence of the east and west branches of the DuPage River. "It's really a hub for community members to visit the site and to learn more about nature," said Eric Shutes, the park district's director of planning.
