2nd Wednesday Lecture: A Journey from Chicago to the Rainforest

June 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Chasing Dreams: A Journey from Chicago to the Rainforest

What does it really mean to chase a life-long dream?

We welcome you to the Garfield Park Conservatory to experience a stunning visual journey presented by Mike Talladen, a Chicago-based photographer, who’s eager to share with you the unforgettable ride.

Explore the rainforests and wildlife of Sumatra and the Peruvian Amazon inch-by-verdant-inch while also taking an in-depth look at eco-tourism, conservation vs palm oil, permaculture, wildlife rescue, and all of the ways our daily lives can (and do!) impact places and things halfway across the world.

Free & open to the public – please RSVP!

At Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance we hope to accommodate you in you having your best experience. If you have an accommodation request related to a disability, please contact us here. We look forward to assisting you.
