Mundelein Public Works and Engineering Receives Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant

Mundelein Public Works and Engineering recently partnered with the Morton Arboretum and 13 communities throughout Lake and Cook County to apply for grant funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. In total, the Mundelein received $7,777. These funds will be used to remove all remaining ash trees and plant new trees throughout Mundelein.

The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative seeks to improve the urban forest within the Lake Michigan Watershed. The loss of millions of ash trees in the Lake Michigan Watershed has drawn attention to the need to expand species diversity in tree planting.

The interagency Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) targets improvements to address the most significant environmental problems within the Great Lakes Basin. Through an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Forest Service anticipates receiving funds to support competitive projects that implement strategic, priority actions within Forest Service authorities to restore, protect, and maintain the Great Lakes ecosystem.
