- Determining the spawning ecology of the imperiled Bigeye Chub (Hybopsis amblops) in Illinois
- Assessing the distribution of the Iowa Darter (Etheostoma exile) in Illinois
- Reintroduction of the state-endangered Redspotted Sunfish (Lepomis miniatus) into historical areas in Illinois
- Reintroduction of the federally-endangered Northern Riffleshell (Epioblasma rangiana) and Clubshell (Pleurobema clava) in Illinois
