High quality restorations are an important value that CFC delivers to the community. To continue our excellent processes and history of success, CFC is pleased to have Kevin Scheiwiller join our team as Restoration Program Manager.

This new role of Restoration Program Manager is primarily responsible for the development and implementation of ecological restoration and natural area management plans on lands owned by CFC. In addition, Kevin will support the efforts to restore areas prioritized by the Barrington Greenway Initiative and other local areas as prioritized by CFC’s Restoration Committee.

Kevin is well known in the Chicago regional conservation community and a familiar face at CFC workday events. He joins CFC having been the Ecological Restoration Field Lead at Stantec Consulting where he was responsible for the planning; coordination; and safety of crews and volunteers performing on-going ecological restoration projects in all types of ecosystems. Kevin also has collaborated with Site Stewards, Forest Preserves of Cook County staff, and others in the creation of restoration management plans as well as training volunteers and supervising interns. He holds degrees in Environmental Science and was a research follow at Loyola University.
