ComEd / Openlands Environmental Grants

ComEd and Openlands have awarded 23 Green Region grants to northern Illinois communities to support and improve natural areas. One recipient was our very own, Village of Lake Barrington, who was awarded a grant for the Flint Creek Corridor Restoration project. This project will increase native habitat for local fauna while providing a native buffer to filter pollutants and guard against erosion during large storm events. The project will also expand the current restoration work being performed on five acres of floodplain. Congratulations, Lake Barrington!
