Calumet Invasive Species Conservation Corps
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. This project, which continues work funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in 2010 and 2011, will significantly reduce and/or eradicate invasive plant species from over 277 acres of unique wetlands and associated uplands at four sites in northeastern Illinois within the southern Lake Michigan watershed: Beaubien Prairie, Dolton Prairie, Kickapoo Prairie, and Wentworth Prairie. The project goals will be achieved by the hiring of four permanent conservation corps crew members plus a crew leader, with emphasis on hiring diverse community members from the Calumet area.
