The Department of Natural Resources is requesting Offers (bids/proposals) from responsible Vendors to meet the State's needs. Below is a brief description of our needs with detailed requirements in subsequent sections of this solicitation. If you are interested and able to meet these requirements, please submit an Offer.
Volo Bog was dedicated as an Illinois Nature Preserve in 1970. Three years later, it was registered as a National Natural Landmark with the United States Department of the Interior. Just 45 miles northwest of Chicago in Lake County, this natural area contains the only "quaking" bog in Illinois to have an open water center.
Tamarack View Trail is a 2.75-mile trail designed for hiking and cross-country skiing. As park visitors traverse through woods, wetlands, field and prairie, they are given the opportunity to experience and enjoy the diverse communities within the park, including the state threatened tamarack trees.
This project will procure construction services to make improvements to the Tamarack View Trail. Such improvements will correct erosion problem areas, minimize sediment deposition into and near sensitive wetlands, and realign trail segments.
A Mandatory Vendor Conference is scheduled for Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at Volo Bog State Natural Area, 28478 W. Brandenburg Road, Ingleside, IL 60041.
