Help us recognize the heroes of Chicago Wilderness. You know the type: novel approaches, big ideas, extraordinary collaborations, and bold leadership.

The Force of Nature Awards bring recognition to people and organizations whose conservation, restoration, advocacy, and/or educational activities are inspirational examples for others.  The Force of Nature Awards complement the Excellence in Ecological Restoration Program (EERP), which focuses on high quality restoration of remnant ecological landscapes of 100 acres or more.

We are seeking:

1) Outstanding site-specific land or water enhancement work; and

2) People, programs and projects that are not site-specific but have made a positive impact on conservation in the region.

Applications are due Tuesday, February 28th, 6 p.m. CST.  Multiple awards will be granted for people, programs and places. Learn more and apply online.
