Kankakee River Area Access Volume 3: Living Resources
The Kankakee River Area Assessment examines an area situated along the Kankakee River in eastern Illinois. Because significant natural community and species diversity is found in the area, it has been designated a state Resource Rich Area.
This Report is part of a series of reports on areas of Illinois where a public-private partnership has been formed. These assessments provide information on the natural and human resources of the area as a basis for managing and improving their ecosystems. The determination of resource rich areas and development of ecosystem-based information and management programs in Illinois are the result of three processes--the Critical Trends Assessment Program the Conservation Congress, and the Water Resources and Land Use Priorities Task Force.
