The Southeast Environmental Task Force will be opposing the proposed gun range that the City of Chicago plans to build at 134th and Jeffery Avenue in Hegewisch. The range will border Whitford and O'Brien Marsh ponds, which are important feeding grounds for the endangered Black Crowned Night Herons and other water fowl. This site was also proposed as possible public park space.
The water district is scheduled to meet Thursday, Jan. 5th.
