Title:Natural and Cultural Resources Master Plan for the Forest Preserves of Cook County
Author(s):Prairie Research Institute
Subject(s):Illinois Forest Preserves
Natural resource conservation
Natural resource management
Archaeological resource conservation
Geographic Coverage:Cook County, IL
Abstract:In developing this master plan, the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois consulted extensively with the Forest Preserves’ staff, volunteers, and partners. Institute staff compiled and analyzed existing data collected over many years by the Forest Preserves and other organizations, institutions, and individuals. Staff also visited most of the preserves to assess their natural communities and the threats they face. This report summarizes their findings and presents recommendations for natural and cultural resources management. The Forest Preserves have also received technical reports providing more detailed analysis, the data compiled from all sources, and a Geographic Information System that integrates all geographically based information. These products will guide the Forest Preserves’ natural and cultural resource management as they implement the vision of the Next Century Conservation Plan.
