Supporting Reforestation Initiatives in the Midwest
1y4e and Delta Institute are working to restore a native oak savanna habitat at a high-traffic public county park surrounded by an airport and heavy industry in Merrillville and Griffith, Indiana. Initially, 1y4e and Delta plan to plant 700 black oak, white oak and black cherry trees at the Oak Ridge Prairie County Park to restore 7 acres of needed, endangered native grassland habitat. These plantings will reduce/treat 845,502.8 stormwater gallons annually.
