City of Chicago :: Chicago Nature and Wildlife Plan & Update


Quote:
The "Chicago Nature and Wildlife Plan Update: A Strategy to Enhance Urban Ecosystems (2011-2016)" was produced by the Mayor's Nature and Wildlife Advisory Committee to continue Chicago's commitment to expand and improve our important urban natural areas. The plan update reviews progress made since the original plan and sets priorities for the next five years.

The original "Chicago Nature and Wildlife Plan (2006)" and its associated Chicago Nature Areas Directory identifies more than 4,800 acres of prairies, savannas, dunes, woodlands, wetlands and potential restoration areas at 98 sites throughout Chicago. As the first plan of its kind in Chicago's history, the Nature and Wildlife plan established a framework to protect and expand ecosystems for the benefit of wildlife and people. The original plan was adopted by Chicago Plan Commission, the Chicago Park District and the Forest Preserve District of Cook County in 2006.
