The GSC has begun to partner with the Waukegan Harbor Citizens’ Advisory Group in conservation and restoration projects near Waukegan Harbor. Following a series of three severe storms this past August, geographer and GSC Director Steve Jansen has recorded and mapped the location of downed trees in Bowen Park. Future projects will include mapping gully erosion in Glen Flora Ravine and habitat restoration areas. This wealth of spatial information will help botanists analyze various data, such as species vulnerability and wind and run-off patterns during storms. It is also aiding park officials participating in clean-up efforts.
