Community members are invited to attend a kickoff meeting for the Evanston Community Habitat Project at 7 p.m. on March 15 in the fourth-floor Parasol Room at the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The two-year project is the result of a $100,000 grant from the Chi-Cal Rivers Fund, administered by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The grant will fund improvements to 3.75 acres of bird habitat along a 1,100-foot section of the North Shore Channel in the Ladd Arboretum, and will add bird-friendly plantings of native shrubs, understory trees, and forbs in Twiggs Park, Harbert Park, Ingraham Park, and a fourth park to be determined.

The project will run from January 2017 through December 2018 and will be matched by $104,516 in City contributions and private funding. Much of the project work will include removing invasive plant species along the North Shore Channel
and replanting those spaces with native and habitat-friendly plant species.
