プロジェクト概要

This 40-acre carbon project is located on the Fox River Bluffs Forest Preserve (Preserve) in Yorkville, IL. The Kendall County Forest Preserve District acquired the 166-acre Preserve in 2015 with a goal to restore the former farmland to prairie and a reforested natural area.
After five years of analysis and preparation, the District and community volunteers planted native trees and shrubs in Spring 2020. For this project, 23,917 trees were planted including six oak species, shagbark hickory, and black walnut. The District also planted 2,749 understory shrubs and trees.
In addition to the trees planted as part of the carbon project, the District seeded over 60 acres at the Preserve with a diverse prairie mix to support the recovery of pollinators — in particular, a local population of the federally endangered Rusty-Patched Bumble Bee.
Restoring this site expands habitat and wildlife corridor connections to other parks and preserves. The District also provides public access to local recreation at the Preserve and expanded nature-based education opportunities.
