The Nature Conservancy’s restoration work at the Emiquon Preserve provides a unique opportunity to engage the public in the process of transforming a large-river floodplain into a rich ecological environment. This work has local benefits to the Illinois River, and is also serving as a restoration model throughout the Mississippi River and influencing floodplain restoration projects in other great rivers around the world.
