Community Ed Receives BACF Grant

Barrington Area Community Foundation (BACF) has provided $1500 in seed money to CFC’s Community Education Committee to help develop its new Habitat Corridors initiative.

This innovative new program is in keeping with CFC’s vision and its efforts to acquire and restore contiguous land. The goal is to create habitat for native birds and other struggling plant and animal species. We believe that property owners in the area can substantially contribute to this effort by implementing sound ecological practices on their own properties.

Our Habitat Corridors program will involve mapping, educating local homeowners, producing instructional print materials, and publicizing the purpose and evolution of this on-going project. Watch for more information about this new program. We thank BACF for their support.
