As part of implementing Water2050, CMAP partnered with Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant on the Lawn to Lake program promoting healthy lawn and landscape practices in the Great Lakes region.
With funding from the U.S. EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, this pollution prevention campaign enables communities to achieve significant water conservation benefits from reduced lawn watering requirements, as well as reduce the amount of polluted runoff. If you would like to commit to being a part of this effort through your lawn care practices, you can take Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant's Lawn to Lake pledge.
CMAP partnered with Lawn to Lake to develop a manual for those interested in promoting sustainable lawn and landscape practices in their community. A suite of outreach cards for use at public outreach events is also available:
