SWAT Green Infrastructure Mapping Projects


Many land-use decisions are made at the local level in our region, and local officials need technical assistance to address the tremendous growth pressures that threaten communities’ natural resources and our regional green infrastructure.

Through the Sustainable Watershed Action Team (SWAT) program, Chicago Wilderness has brought together experts in planning, engineering, storm water management, and other professions to work directly with local officials to map their community's natural resources and identify opportunity areas for implementing green infrastructure strategies.
