Savanna Army Depot / Lost Mound Field Station

 

The Savanna Army Depot was located in southwestern Jo Daviess and northwestern Carroll counties, Illinois. Founded in 1917 and closed in 2000, it was used for munitions manufacturing, testing and storage. The 13,062-acre area is listed as a statewide significant natural area by the Illinois Natural Areas Inventory. At least 47 Illinois endangered and threatened plant and animal species have been observed at the Depot. Some reports in this collection represent research undertaken in preparation for the establishment of the Illinois Natural History Survey's Lost Mound Field Station, and these were not produced by INHS staff.
