Governor Announces Investments in Lake Michigan Shoreline (USA)

In honor of Earth Month, Governor Pat Quinn recently visited a volunteer clean-up of Chicago’s Oak Street Beach to announce a $1.6 million investment in environmental and education projects along the Lake Michigan shoreline and in the Millennium Reserve-Calumet region.

The projects will be funded through the Illinois Coastal Management Program (ICMP), which was formed in 2012 by Governor Quinn to protect Illinois’ 63-mile Lake Michigan shoreline. This announcement is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to protect the natural resources and ensure a clean and healthy environment for future generations.

“There is no better way to celebrate Earth Month than working to keep Illinois clean and safe for future generations,” Governor Quinn said. “These investments will help protect and preserve the Lake Michigan shoreline – one of Illinois’ most valuable natural resources.”

Grants are federally funded through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
