LCF Acquires Land on Jordan Creek in Vermilion County
The Land Conservation Foundation is excited to announce that it purchased 11 acres at the confluence of the Salt Fork of the Vermilion River and Jordan Creek, in Vermilion County. LCF wants to thank the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation for awarding LCF a grant for 80% of the cost of this land. LCF also wants to thank local donors who helped make this acquisition possible.
Improvements Made to the Bruce Hannon Levee Trail
The Land Conservation Foundation announced two improvements to the Bruce Hannon Levee Trail at the Sangamon River Corridor Reserve. LCF has installed a pedestrian bridge to cross the low area between the kiosk and trail head and added a large boulder sign at the trailhead.
Thank you for your help! LCF Met the 3-to-1 Grant challenge for the Sangamon River Corridor Reserve!
A hearty thank you goes to all of LCF’s supporters!! LCF has raised the $7,000 for the Clean Energy Community Foundation matching grant!! This means the work on the levee can be completed, which will protect the 59-acre reforestation project and to keep the recreational Bruce Hannon Levee Trail open
