 About the Project

As part of the Alpha Delta Eta Chapter's Honors in Action project, a team of students led by Joshua Beneze and Erik Morgan explored the topic of invasive species, with particular regard to the KCC area. The species that stood out as the most potentially harmful to the Kankakee and Iroquois counties and surrounding areas was the Emerald Ash Borer.

Utilizing academic research methods, the students developed a public awareness campaign to help educate the local population about the dangers of the EAB and present possible ways of preventing infestations and how to proceed once an infestation has been confirmed.
