GRN workshop a success

The workshop was August 16 and 17, 2022 with the Barrington Greenways Initiative, northwest of Chicago.

Four sites were visited over two days, a half day for each site. There are four companion GRN blog posts that were published before the workshop.

Kudos to Kevin Scheiwiller who was the lead planner for the workshop. The planning team included Justin Pepper, Kristin Dapra, and Kelly Schultz. Many others helped lead tours.

The workshop highlighted a well functioning partnership between agencies, NGOs, and volunteer stewards. There is a long history in this region of people sweating the details as they restore and manage high quality natural areas.
