A stakeholder advisory group is helping guide the planning project. This group, comprised primarily of environmental and outdoor recreation professionals, is not making decisions or influencing project implementation. Rather, it is providing input and feedback which complements what the broader public is providing through surveys and public meetings. The advisory group and a number of additional partners are also supporting efforts to reach as many current and potential park users as possible by promoting community input opportunities through their own networks.  Organizations and agencies represented on the advisory group include:

  • Audubon – Chicago Region
  • Calumet Ecological Park Association
  • Chicago Park District
  • Faith in Place
  • Field Museum
  • Fishin’ Buddies
  • Forest Preserves of Cook County
  • Fuller Park Community Development
  • Goldengate Homeowners
  • Legislative District 33
  • National Park Service
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Southeast Environmental Task Force
  • Southeast Sportsmen’s Club
  • Ward 10 Alderman’s Office
