To support the planning, acquisition, and improvement of local parks, natural areas, and recreation resources, ComEd and Openlands announced grants from the ComEd Green Region Program to 26 recipients throughout northern Illinois. The grantees, which range from local municipalities to park districts and forest preserves, will each receive up to $10,000 to support open space projects.

Grantees include:

  1. Pollinator Support Through Oak Restoration at Irons Oaks (Homewood Flossmoor Park District – Irons Oaks): This project will result in habitat improvement and pollinator protection. It aims to plant and protect young oak trees and educate visitors about the importance of oak forests for pollinator support.

  2. Pollinator Meadows at Oak Forest Commuter Train Station (City of Oak Forest): This project will establish pollinator meadows and enhance monarch butterfly habitat near Oak Forest’s commuter train station. Educational signage will serve to inform the public about pollinators and pollinator conservation, as well as provide links to additional resources available online.
