PUBLIC POLICY

Concerned citizens may show their support of existing or proposed pro-wetland programs and legislation by notifying local, state, and federal representatives about their opinions. Also, the state of Illinois has recently completed the Illinois Wetland Conservation Strategy in which the status of Illinois wetlands and the effectiveness of the existing regulatory and non-regulatory programs were evaluated. This strategy has identified several places where improvements may be made to the existing protection systems. In the near future, IDNR, in cooperation with other state and federal agencies, will be facilitating the implementation of various recommendations and suggestions contained in this document. If individuals or groups would like to be involved in the implementation process they should contact IDNR's Office of Resource Conservation and express their interest.
