On 16 August 2012, Lt. Col. James Schreiner spoke at a press conference for Phase I of the Northerly Island restoration project, along with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Michael Kelly, General Superintendent of the Chicago Park District. The press conference was held at the Field Museum to announce plans to create a urban camping area for families, children, and at-risk youth along the 91-acre manmade peninsula found on the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago, Illinois.
