Members of the Illinois Forestry Development Council have been working to reinstate the Illinois Invasive Species Council. A committee was assembled and have been working on a strategy and structure to help educate and communicate about existing and potential invasive species. One of the ways that our Illinois Park, Recreation and Conservation Districts can help support this cause is by writing a letter of support from your agency to the Directors of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Please utilize this link to access the letter of support template. You can then copy and paste onto your agency letterhead, and then sign by an appropriate member of staff or Board. Please forward your letter to Lydia Scott at email@example.com no later than July 20, 2019.
