OTTAWA, ILL – State Rep. Lance Yednock, D-Ottawa, will continue his efforts to protect Illinois’ forests for its hunters, wildlife and greenery through his appointment to the Illinois Forestry Development Council.

“As an outdoorsman and nature enthusiast, I am ready to get to work to protect Illinois’ forests and make them work better for everyone across our state,” said Yednock. “We are in the midst of a climate crisis, and we must do what we can to keep our forests in good condition for future generations.”

The council is tasked with leading sustainability and conservation initiatives, monitoring forest and soil health among other duties. The council’s annual report is instrumental in informing the General Assembly and other policymakers on the state our forests.
