The next webinar for Chicago Living Corridors will be Thursday, May 25, at 7pm. Please join us to hear about the Citizens for Conservation’s Hill ‘N Dale Preserve Restoration Plans
There was recently very exciting news about CFC’s acquisition of 246 acres along Spring Creek in Barrington Hills. This purchase and planned restoration have saved the former horse farm from development. With wetlands the most endangered habitat is northern Illinois, this land just north of Spring Creek Forest Preserve and the Spring Creek Illinois Nature Preserve will expand that critical habitat. Learn about the process that has begun at Hill ‘N Dale to restore Spring Creek to wetlands. Jim Anderson will also share plans to restore sedge meadow, wet prairie, prairie, and savanna communities within the preserve, creating habitat for a variety of native plants and animals.
Jim Anderson is currently the Vice President of Citizens for Conservation’s Board of Directors and previously was the Director of Natural Resources for Lake County Forest Preserve. Jim also serves on the Steering Committee of Chicago Wilderness Alliance.
