Watershed groups restore conservation lands with clean energy funds

The red flower of the blooming skunk cabbage is very distinctive.
One of the earliest spring flowers is also one of the smelly-est. Right now skunk cabbage is finishing up its blooms at sites throughout McHenry County. Skunk cabbage is found in seeps where cool, mineralrich groundwater bubbles to the land surface. Skunk cabbage can generate its own heat to spread its stinky smell to attract pollinators, even as snow remains on the land. Its red flower is distinctive. Now the plant is forming a rosette of large, bright green leaves. The proliferation of skunk cabbage is due in part to the efforts of two organizations and their many stewardship volunteers. Last spring Nippersink Watershed Association (NWA) and the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County, on behalf of Silver and Sleepy Hollow Creeks Watershed Coalition (SSHCWC), each received a Stewardship Challenge Grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICECF). The grant program funds stewardship activities on private and public lands. Grant recipients must complete 400 hours of volunteer stewardship, raise $7000 in donations from the public, and share news about their efforts on social media in order to receive an additional $27,000 from ICECF. Both groups have until October to complete their fundraising and stewardship efforts. The additional funds received from the ICECF will be put towards further restoration of the sites. Nippersink Watershed Association volunteers have been working to restore the Merchant Creek Corridor on the east side of Wonder Lake since 2017. The association owns a 13-acre wooded corridor along the creek. Volunteers have been clearing invasive brush from the ravine
that Merchant Creek runs through. An impressive display of skunk cabbage is blossoming in the areas the group has cleared. Since May, 2018 when the ICECF grant was awarded, they have logged 369 hours of volunteer stewardship and are on track to complete their 400-hour goal by fall. Members of the public are invited to join in at their workdays, which will typically be held from 8 to10:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. Workday details are posted at their Nippersink Watershed Association Facebook page. “We’ve had great turnout at our workdays.” said Mark Nichols, stewardship events coordinator for the Nippersink Watershed Association. “We so appreciate the time that members of the Wonder Lake Sportsmans Club have put into clearing of invasive brush from the site.” The Silver and Sleepy Hollow Creeks Watershed Coalition is concentrating its restoration efforts on Sterne’s Fen, an Illinois State Nature Preserve, on Hillside Road in Crystal Lake in collaboration with the Crystal Lake Park District, which owns the site. This group recently completed its 400-stewardship hours goal. They continue their work at workdays held the fourth Sunday of the month from 9 a.m. to Noon. Workday details are posted at their Silver & Sleepy Hollow Creeks Watershed Coalition Facebook page and can be obtained by calling the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County at 815-338-0393, which is the coalition’s sponsor. “On behalf of Brice Alt, Steward at the site, Steve Byers, with the Illinois State Nature Preserves Commission, and the Environmental Defenders, we would like to thank all of the many volunteers who worked so
hard to rescue the oaks and open the fen to sunlight. We invite the public to visit Sterne’s Fen as a profusion of native plants are blooming in these newly opened areas during the next few weeks,” said Nancy Schietzelt, with the Environmental Defenders. Both groups are progressing in their efforts to raise funds from community members to satisfy the local match requirement for the ICECF grant. NWA has $2340 left to raise and SSHCWC needs to raise $4040. Donations to the Merchant Creek project can be made at www. nippersink.org. The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County is currently selling $10 pieces of a big picture puzzle of marsh marigolds, another fen plant, to raise funds. Their effort can be supported with donations at their website: www. mcdef.org. “The Foundation created this grant program in 2014 in recognition of volunteers like those involved in these two McHenry County organizations,” said Dennis O’Brien, Executive Director of the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation. “Individuals and communities throughout Illinois are donating time, labor and money to care for nature and it is apparent at their sites. The Foundation is proud to support their hard work by providing additional funds that can be valuable in purchasing needed plant supplies and hand tools and/or in hiring contractors to tackle especially challenging parts of the work.” The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation’s Community Stewardship Challenge Grant program assists non-profit organizations who engage volunteers in the care of habitat at non-profit and government-owned sites.

Illinois National Guard Cyber Warriors on the cutting edge Our nation, states, communities, corporations and institutions are under attack each and every day; but rather than bombs and bullets our adversaries are using binary ones and zeros. But, just as it is ‘Always Ready, Always There’ in responding to floods and other disasters, the Illinois National Guard is ready to respond to cyberattack. More than 40 Illinois National Guard Soldiers and Airmen honed their cyber skills as part of Cyber Shield 19 from April 5 to 19 at Camp Atterbury, Ind., sponsored by the Army National Guard. “Whenever anybody asks me, how do you build cyber capacity? It’s by exercising. And to build that capacity is -- particularly when we talk about within the homeland - it’s working with our partners,” said Brig. Gen. Richard R. Neely, the Adjutant General of the Illinois National Guard. “And that’s what’s really critical about the Cyber Shield exercise. It’s about bringing those partnerships together and being able to work with those people that you may be called out to assist.” Cyber Shield 19 brings together some 800 Army and Air National Guard network defenders and worldclass cyber security professionals, industry network owners, an Army Reserve assessment team and federal and state agencies to train the next generation of cyber warriors in this ever changing, dynamic world of electrons and information networks. The Illinois contingent included high-tech warriors from the Illinois Army National Guard’s 176th Cyber Protection Team based in Bloomington, and the Illinois Air National Guard’s 183rd Wing based in Springfield; 182nd Airlift Wing based in Peoria; and the 126th Air Refueling Wing, based at Scott Air Force Base. The exercise consists 24 “Blue” teams and embedded industry partners. These teams attend a week of training, followed by a multi-faceted exercise in the defense of critical infrastructure and election systems. The opposing forces or “OPFOR” are also National Guard members from across the country trained in the use of offensive Cyber tactics and tools. The tasks, or “injects” as they are called, cover not only malicious actors on the digital landscape, but also forensics, intelligence, legal, insider threat, and government-industry partnerships.

Cyber Shield 19 began with a week of classroom preparation and will culminate in exercise week, a scenario-based cyber role-playing event.
The Illinois National Guard played several key support roles in the exercise. Airmen from the 183rd Wing’s 217th Engineering Installation Squadron set up the cyber range for the exercise that included more than five miles of wiring, more than 1,000 computers and hundreds of other devices and monitors and provided the technical support to keep the range hardware running smoothly. The Illinois Army and Air National Guard also filled several key positions within Cyber Shield 19’s leadership, fusion cell, green team (exercise support), and public affairs office. Maj.

As the nation’s largest unclassified cyber defense training exercise, Cyber Shield provides participants with training on industry network infrastructure and cyber protection best practices.
Soldiers, Airmen and industry Partners conduct network surveillance during Cyber Shield 19 training week at Camp Atterbury, Indiana April 7, 2019. As the nation’s largest unclassified cyber defense training exercise, Cyber Shield provides participants with training on industry network infrastructure and cyber protection best practices.
served as Cyber Shield 19’s Chief of Staff. While the training is intense and the hours are long, the cyber warriors also have some fun. At the end of the first week, there is a competition called NetWars where the Airmen and Soldiers from across the nation test their cyber defense skills against each other in what is akin to a giant video game. A team called the “Cyber Space Force” fielded by Airmen from all three wings of the Illinois Air National Guard won the competition. “It was interesting and exhilarating,” said Tech Sgt. Ryan Swanson, a cyber expert with the 182nd Airlift Wing’s communications flight. “I enjoyed myself and it was a great learning experience.” Cyber Space Force’s victory was sweeter because the teammates had a chip on their shoulders. “We were the only team without a (Defensive Cyberspace Operations Element) or a (Cyber Protection Team), so to show that we’ve got great cyber talent and could climb past teams that are seasoned and train together… well, we showed the talent is there. Now we need a unit,” Swanson said. Cyber Shield is dynamic and ever evolving, bringing new challenges with each iteration. “It’s a refinement every single year, and next year will be completely different than this year and the year after. It depends on what is the threat environment and what is going on,” said George Battistelli, the Army National Guard Cybersecurity Program Manager, Information Technology
Strategy Division Chief and the Cyber Shield 19 Exercise Director during an April 9 Pentagon media round table. “While they’re training, they’re also building relationships,” Battistelli said. The relationships with industry partners, state and federal agencies, and law enforcement are key to effective cyber defense and the National Guard is naturally suited to grow those relationships, he added. “Part of the goodness of the Guard is that … traditional soldier, who may work at the Department of Public Works or something, in his everyday job and then he drills on the weekend. And so he has the inside knowledge of how that system works,” Battistelli said. The training that Soldier or Airman gets through Cyber Shield 19 and the National Guard adds to his ability to do his civilian job and the training and experience he or she gets at their civilian work adds to the military’s cyber capabilities. “And now he’s a very valuable asset” in protecting critical infrastructure, Battistelli said. The exercise provides critical cyber battlefield experience for the members of National Guard’s Cyber Protections Teams (CPT), Defensive Cyberspace Operations Elements (DCOE) and Cyber Mission Assurance Teams (CMAT.) These cyber teams provide critical network defense for the computer networks of our state and local agencies, industry and critical infrastructure. “We are grossly outnumbered. Even if everyone at the exercise was fully certified and fully trained we
still would be outnumbered,” said Matt Sannipoli, Stealthwatch Instructor, CISCO. “With this highly connected world we live in, the threats are coming from everywhere. So the more ways we can identify those, the better we are able to help create the security that we are all hoping we can get to.” Cyber Shield was conceived to prepare the National Guards’ cyber warriors for this challenging and complex cyber battleground. “The defense strategy talks about critical infrastructure and about being able to survive and succeed in a contested environment,” said Col. Teri Williams, Commander, Cyber Shield 19. “We planned for 11 months to create a contested environment with everything from a scenario for the cyber range to creating all the OPFOR injects or attacks that need to happen. These injects are based on the technical and training objectives that we want to accomplish for that year. That’s what Cyber Shield is all about.” This is Cyber Shield’s seventh year. No two years have look alike. “The way cyber works is that it’s an environment that every time we get better at defense our adversaries are going to get better at offense,” said Keith Owen Wichmann, Cyber Situational Awareness Technical Lead, Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University. “We have a thinking offense coming at us. If we don’t have a thinking defense protecting us, then we don’t have a prayer.” Cyber Shield has a critical training component that brings in industry leading courses and seminars for the participants, which is organized into tracks based on the role of the participating cyber team member. “The first week is training and we bring in some top-notch training. We really try to focus on getting people prepared for cyber defense,” said Williams. During the first week of training, Cyber Shield brings in hightech companies like Microsoft and CISCO. The International Society of Automation (ISA) does infrastructure network training. The SANS Institute does cyber defense training. “But we also focus on the offensive side. Our belief is that the better that you are trained on the offensive side, the stronger a defender you will be,” Williams said. “So we use companies like SpectreOps to come in and give us that offensive training.” Cyber Shield is a premiere, unclassified training exercise for cyber defensive operations. And the contributions of interagency and industry partners greatly enhance the warfighting capability of cyber teams. “This is an opportunity to bring together the Army National Guard, Air National Guard, the Army Reserves, private sector, federal and state partners, industry, and academia, into a setting where we can learn and grow together as a nation,” said Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Burkett, Vice Director of Domestic Operations for the National Guard Bureau during the April 9 Pentagon media round table. The Cyber warfighting domain is always changing but our National Guard cyber warriors and their interagency and industry partners are always ready for the fight. The Illinois National Guard Soldiers and Airmen return to the Land of Lincoln on April 19.
