2nd Wednesday Lecture: Nurturing Nature in Chicago
April 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
As growing season is here and our environment comes back to life – here is an invitation for us to improve our city and grow some plants!
We know that cities need nature. It provides us with cleaner air, keeps water out of our basements, and creates beauty in our surroundings. Nature doesn’t have to be separate from the city, however.
Our parks, community gardens and front and back yards can become vital places for many of the birds and butterflies found in the area. It’s time for us to do our part in connecting the two. Plant seeds will be available at the lecture to help get you started!
Iza is a Conservation Ecologist at The Field Museum, working in the greater Chicago Wilderness area – bringing back the health and resilience to those areas that have heavily been affected by urban sprawl and industrial development.
FREE and open to the public.
Excited to see you!
