Sustain Springfield Green Map

Looking for a community garden, farmer’s market or recycling location?

Let the Sustain Springfield Green Map show the way!

Springfield, Illinois is remarkably “green” for a small city but there is no central, easily accessible, online location to showcase its progress. Until Now.

The Sustain Springfield Green Map is a user-friendly, GIS-based, online resource that guides residents, visitors, organizations and businesses to sustainable or environmentally-friendly services, sites, and amenities.

Open the map to start your adventure and discover more of “green” Springfield.


UAct began to explore a sustainability initiative in 2016 with environmental sustainability specialist, Wynne Coplea ultimately resulting in the Sustain Springfield Green Map. The Map is hosted by Lincoln Land Community College Green Center and was created by Jordyn Lahey, a LLCC student in Rey de Castro’s Advanced GIS class. The project was also made possible with a seed grant from the Dominican Sisters of Springfield.
