Doug Blogett:

Emiquon - Reconnect to Illinois River?


Wed., Oct. 8, 2014 @ 7:00 PM

Forest Park Nature Center



Doug Blodgett, Director for River Conservation, will give a presentation on Emiquon Preserve and the science behind the planned reconnection to the Illinois River.


Doug was instrumental in the planning and development of The Nature Conservancy's Emiquon Preserve.  Improving the health of the Illinois River is the ultimate goal of the work at Emiquon. To do this, restoring the natural connection between the river and Emiquon is a top priority.


Doug and his team are working to complete the design and construction of managed structures that make this reconnection.
