Here are different ways you can help create a healthy, diverse Chicago Region Ecosystem.
Citizen Science. You don’t need to be a scientist to report ecosystem observations that can contribute to research and a better understanding of the Chicago Region Ecosystem.
Natural land restoration & maintenance. Stewardship / volunteer. Public & private land. (Include public land volunteer opportunities — encourage reciprocity between public & private sector promotion of volunteerism/participation. Include a link up to the ‘Creating Native Habitat’ section, as a reminder that good place to start participating is in your own yard.)
