VILLAGE OF PLEASANT PRAIRIE: Inventory & Mgt. Plan-Des Plaines

Purpose

The Village of Pleasant Prairie is applying for a river planning grant in the amount of $10,000 to hire a biologist to inventory the flora and fauna of a 430-acre conservation preserve adjacent to the Des Plaines River and develop a management plan. The total project costs are $31,000 The objective of this project is to assess the condition of the natural resources within the project area and to develop a natural resource management plan that identifies these resources and their locations, describes their quality and natural history, provides photo documentation, recommends and prioritizes ecological management activities, and develops educational material for Prairie Springs Park. The condition of the streams and riparian corridors will be delineated, documented, and digitized. A management plan will be developed and submitted as part of the final report. All inventories, assessments, and mapping will also be included with the final report. This project will produce a comprehensive report that will provide a description of the historic landscape of the area; natural resources of the site; discussion of the impact of exotic and invasive species; maps of stream courses, plant communities, management areas, and possible trail routes; and recommendations for Des Plaines River lowlands management activities.
