We love it when a plan comes together!
On April 7, the Chicago Park District announced that 3.1 acres would be added to the Montrose Beach Dunes Natural Area. This outcome is the result of a coordinated effort that included:
-A documentary film on an endangered species
-The proclamation of Piping Plover Day by Gov. Pritzker
-The support of Ald. Cappleman
-Dozens of emails as well as public comment
-An op-ed and letter in the Sun-Times
-Interface with local media throughout
-Direct outreach to Park District leadership
Cheers to the expansion of Chicago's lakefront natural areas!
