Some funds have already been designated for the “doable and potentially fundable” projects identified by IDNR in 2015, and the GLRI grant is supporting invasives control at Wm. Powers. However, plenty of the other work already prioritized still requires adequate funding to proceed. In addition, at present there is no special funding set aside to implement the Park Enhancement Recommendations Plan that is being developed. Rather, IDNR hopes the plan will help make the case for funding as federal grants and other new resources become available.
