Schaumburg’s Parklands and Nearby Forest Preserves

This week we have another substantial update to our website, courtesy of the Parklands research team in Prof. Mike Bryson’s SUST 210 online class from the Spring 2012 semester. Undergraduate scholars Cheryl Green, Colleen Husted, and Pete LaHaie discuss several key issues impacting to parklands in and around Schaumburg — from ecological management practices used in conservation areas, public parks, and forest preserves; to the important role parklands play in providing habitat for endangered and threatened species; to the critical educational function provided by these suburban green spaces.

In coming weeks, look for more work by SUST 210 online students on key sustainability topics, including energy, green design, and waste & recycling.
