Forest Preserves receives environmental grant

Print Article

ROCKFORD - Forest Preserves of Winnebago County recently received a Green Region grant of $5,000 from ComEd and Openlands to support habitat improvements at Cedar Cliff Forest Preserve.

Specifically, the funding will be used to remove invasive trees and understory to establish a shortgrass prairie along a small creek at Cedar Cliff. The goal is to improve pollinator habitat, allow visitors to experience native prairie and improve site aesthetics.

"This funding provides a big boost to our efforts to turn Cedar Cliff into high quality habitat for bees, butterflies and hundreds of other species that rely on native prairies," said Mike Groves, FPWC Natural Resources Manager.
