CAMPTON TOWNSHIP – ComEd and Openlands have awarded Campton Township a Green Region grant to help remove invasive plant species at the Harley Woods site.
The township was one of 17 municipalities and nonprofits throughout northern Illinois to receive funding through the new Green Region program, which is a joint effort by ComEd and Openlands to fund municipal conservation and environmental projects. Each grant applicant was eligible for a maximum of $10,000 per project. ComEd will distribute the grants over the next two years.
Openlands, a Chicago-based nonprofit focused on land conservation, will monitor the projects.
