Two new sites in the Forest Preserves of Cook County were granted increased protections by the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission for being high-quality or important habitats. Elizabeth Conkey Woods near Palos Heights was named an Illinois Nature Preserve, while Bergman Slough in Palos Park was named a Land and Water Reserve.Elizabeth Conkey Woods Nature Preserve—a 180-acre portion of Elizabeth Conkey Forest Preserve— features mesic woodland, mesic floodplain forest and sedge meadow. Numerous native and migrating birds have been spotted at the site, including woodpeckers, nuthatches, vireos, 19 species of warblers and northern waterthrush.Bergman Slough Land and Water Reserve has undergone restoration and prairie and savanna reconstruction efforts since 2001; the site now contains restored prairie, savanna and marsh habitat.

Statement on Public Safety Measures In Response to Potential Election Day Unrest

November 2, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

With news stories across the country, including Chicago, reporting on massive safety precautions being taken by businesses and residents, it’s disconcerting to see so many cities ‘boarding up’ their downtown districts. After a summer of chaos and destruction, this situation raises a legitimate question to the elected leadership charged with providing safety for the public.

Will Mayor Lightfoot and Governor Pritzker take all of the necessary safety precautions to keep our communities and our residents safe in the face of potential unrest?
It is my hope that we do not have a repeat of what was allowed to occur this past summer. I look forward to hearing from both the mayor and the governor regarding all of the safety measures they are enacting to preserve law and order over the next coming days regardless of the outcome of the election.

It’s imperative that the public is reassured that their safety and well-being will not be jeopardized or exploited for political purposes.

What a joke. They don’t care about criminals with guns but make it there number one priority to stop citizens who follow the laws to purchase a gun to protect there family.

It could/would be "Hysterically Funny", if it wasn't so sad....

I totally agree

Kim Foxx what color you going to wear for this?

Crazy times for sure ! God help us 🙏🏻

Thank you democrats for our new crime bill and especially Pritzker for signing it into law.
