Where do you go when you care about the natural world and want to get more involved? Maybe you already recycle but want to do more.
Or perhaps you're a teacher and you want your students to understand—and help protect—the natural resources around them. Possibly you work for
an environmental organization and want to reach other organizations with the same goals.
The Chicagoland Environmental Network (CEN), a group of more than 240 environmental and natural resource organizations,
can get you connected.
Who uses CEN? People just like you. CEN is a resource for anyone interested in nature or conservation-related activities
in northeastern Illinois and surrounding areas. CEN organizations are involved in important work, including habitat restoration; wetland,
prairie, and watershed projects; urban gardening; energy conservation; composting, wildlife conservation; and recycling.
