Everyone can be involved in making sure our Valley is a great place to live!  The goal of our conservation and restoration efforts is to keep the Illinois Valley and its tributaries as a fully functioning ecosystem, where ecological protection, conservation and economically productive uses support diverse aquatic and riparian communities, meet all state and federal water quality standards, promote economic sustainability and provide recreational opportunities!  Our kids are the best place to start.

This page is full of activities and links specifically designed to help young people understand the importance of preventing polluted storm water runoff. You’re never to young (or old) to prevent pollutions and protect our water resources!
