DRIVING GOLF INTO THE NEXT CENTURY:
THE ECOLOGICAL MASTER PLAN

Help us protect and preserve our community's ecological health. Canal Shores has kicked off a campaign to raise funds to begin a ecological study of the course. The study involves an inventory of trees, plant species, wildlife, and will delineate wetlands and help us plan for the future. This will inform and guide us as we plan the future for the course.

Help us meet the challenge of Coastal Management Grant which requires matching funds to do this study. We have engaged the firm, PRI, which has great experience in working on the eco systems in northern Illinois. Learn more here.

 

You can help Canal Shores raise the funds needed to ensure that our planning can move forward. A final master plan and the ecological plan can only be realized with your support. Learn more about Canal Shores 100 by visiting our home page for the project. 

We appreciate the generous support we have received to date. A donation in any amount is welcome. All donations are tax deductible. 

PLEASE DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE ECO FUND TODAY.
