Last year the CW membership helped select12 animal speciesthat are being prioritized for conservation work across the region.

Nominate a Species!

The criteria used to inform this nomination survey were selected by a group of expert advisors with input from members across the Chicago Wilderness Region.

RESPONSES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY CLOSE OF BUSINESS ON JUNE 23.

Please forward this to staff or colleagues who would be interested in participating. Nominations will be scored to help determine the initial subset of species that will be further evaluated by a group of experts this fall. The final list of species will be determined by the end of the year.
