The Sustain Springfield Green Map is hosted by the Lincoln Land Community College Green Center. The Urban Action Network designed and developed the conceptual framework along with environmental specialist Wynne Coplea. The initial map was created by Jordyn Lahey, who was an LLCC student in Rey de Castro’s Advanced GIS class. The project was also made possible with a seed grant to the Urban Action Network from the Dominican Sisters of Springfield.
