Passionate About the Prairies
Two generous conservationists from Wilmette, Illinois, have committed $200,000 from their estate to Ducks Unlimited for the Charlotte Adelman and Bernard L. Schwartz Mola Prairie and Wetland Preserve. This project is a joint effort between DU and the U.S. Forest Service restoring 60 acres of high-quality prairie and wetland habitat in Illinois. Funding for this project was also provided by CorLands, a Chicago based non-profit conservation organization.
"We are very fortunate to have people like Charlotte and Bernard who recognize the beauty and value of native prairies to both wildlife and people," said Eric Schenck, Regional Biologist for Ducks Unlimited. "With their support, more projects like this will be possible in the future."
The couple was recognized by Ducks Unlimited at a dedication ceremony for the Charlotte Adelman and Bernard L. Schwartz Mola Prairie and Wetland Preserve.
