The purpose of the Forest Preserve District of DuPage is, first and foremost, the preservation and restoration of quality green space for all of us to enjoy. Expertise is required to restore our preserves to fully-functioning ecosystems for the benefit of diverse wildlife and other benefits. We must preserve and protect our heritage for future generations.

We need trail improvements and accessibility for all, regardless of age, ethnicity or race, and physical health, to give everyone an opportunity to become immersed in nature. The current pandemic has given residents an opportunity to get outside safely. The preserves are more important than

 ever for our well-being.

Solar energy provides clean and low cost electricity for District operations. Geothermal energy provides for heat and cooling. I support the District being a leader in lowering the carbon footprint of the District, particularly when saving public money and improving air quality,

River Restoration

The Master Plan addresses restoration of impaired public lands. That should include improving waterways by restoring ecosystems and reducing flooding to communities downstream. This should also allow new opportunities for recreation and enjoyment.
