Installing the Bio-islands at IDNR Headquarters

Three bio-islands were planted and installed on April 30, 2013, at IDNR Headquarters in Springfield. These islands are part of part of the natural landscaping project and will help reduce the effects of excess nutrients in the ponds as well as providing wildlife habitat.
