IDNR Introduces New Website

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources announced the launch of a new website called CICADA (The Conservation Inclusive Construction and Development Archive). This website is an online resource which aims to engage the public and private sectors in habitat protection, restoration, and biodiversity conservation through voluntary actions. 

The site serves as a one-stop shop for residential and private landowners to find guidance and ideas to make their property more wildlife friendly. IDNR Spokesperson Rachel Torbert says that this is a great way to find information to work around different wildlife species.



The website features projects small and large as far as what you can accomplish to help wildlife.



CICADA users also will be linked to assistance programs for landowners and those who want to make tax-deductible donations towards the Illinois Conservation Foundation. The website also provides tips on how to certify habitat projects with various organizations. There is also a helpful link to other businesses and other wildlife websites. To view the website visit https://cicada-idnr.org.
