Dragonfly Lifeline

Today's Chicago Tribune has a story about a project led by Dan Soluk, a professor of aquatic ecology at University of South Dakota. He's working with the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority to preserve habitat for the Hine's emerald dragonfly below the I-355 tollway over the Des Plaines River. The ISTHA has spent about $6 million on the dragonfly protection effort, which includes about $1.5 million to partner with Soluk.
