On Saturday, May 10, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe and Midwest Regional Director Tom Melius joined volunteers from around the Chicago Area to plant trees to develop the Burnham Wildlife Corridor, a new natural area in Chicago’s Burnham Park.

 

The corridor creates a 100-acre ribbon of urban wilderness running through one of the city’s premier lakefront properties. The corridor is located within the Millennium Reserve, one of two sites in Illinois to be included in President Obama's "America's Great Outdoors" initiative.

 

The event was conducted in partnership with Chicago Wilderness, The Field Museum, Friends of the Parks, The Nature Conservancy, Openlands, Audubon - Chicago Region, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
