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.)
