St. Joseph Wetland Restoration and Education Project Update:

The CCSWCD is working to complete the educational center at our St. Joseph Wetland site.  Construction began this spring, and the 90' long concrete entrance of Illinois Route 150 is complete.  Donations are being accepted from those who want to be part of this exciting opportunity for environmental education and enjoyment. The education center will include a permeable pavement for parking, bio-retention basins and raingardens, educational signage around a viewing area and seating benches built by high school students at St. Joseph-Ogden.  The site has already been used by many groups and individuals, and the local Boy Scout troop, along with others, will be part of completing the center. Please help us bring this premier outdoor classroom to life so all can learn about the flora and fauna of a wetland.  To learn more, please check out our history and plans for education at the St. Joseph Wetland Restoration and Education Site.
