Join HLC for the second Prairie du Pont informational open house. The open house is an excellent opportunity for individuals in the local community and affected areas to meet with partners working in the watershed to learn about the Prairie du Pont watershed restoration and resilience.
Through increased funding, parties have started planning and designing projects to alleviate issues affecting the watershed in the Cahokia Heights, East St. Louis and surrounding communities. Attending this Open House will give residents a better understanding of projects and an opportunity to ask questions to the many parties involved.
HeartLands Conservancy will brief on the watershed plan that came back from the committee, which includes community input.
Come out to learn about the health of your local watershed and influence where the community invests in future surface water quality!
Prairie du Pont Project background: HeartLands Conservancy partnered with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) and the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC) to embark on a watershed planning process for the Prairie du Pont and St. Clair County portion of Judy’s Branch watersheds. These watersheds cover a 96,250-acre area in St. Clair and Monroe counties!
