ABOUT

Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee

The Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee was originally organized in 2007 as the Greening Task Force to discuss the environmental issues the Park District was facing and explore measures to be taken to meet citizens’ greening interests and maintain the health of the parks. The committee acts as a liaison between the Park District and the community, helping implement the Park District’s Environmental Policy, assisting the Park Board in identifying and exploring sustainability issues and environmental initiatives, helping determine annual projects, and maintaining the Green Team, the Park District’s park stewardship program. 

Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee members serve staggered 3 year terms with new terms beginning in January.
