Sauk-Calumet Group of the Illinois Sierra Club to Meet on Monday, March 12

Palos Park, IL—(ENEWSPF)—March 2, 2012. The Sauk-Calumet Group of the Illinois Sierra Club will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, March 12, at 7:15 p.m. at the Frankfort Public Library, 21119 Pfeiffer Rd. (just off Rt. 30).

Sauk-Calumet member Jerry Heinrich will tell us about the proposed Illiana Expressway that would connect Interstate 65 in Indiana with Interstate 55 in Illinois, and the potential environmental impacts of the project. The route is significant because it would access the proposed but controversial third airport in the Peotone area.

Sierra Club meetings are free and open to the public.  People interested in enjoying outdoor activities, preserving the environment, and protecting the world in which we live, are encouraged to attend.  Come hear what’s going on in your community at this month’s meeting.  For additional information, contact Patrick Coffey, Publicity Chair, at [email protected].
