It might not surprise you to know that, in the distant past, Chicagoland was home to bears, bobcats, orchids and badgers. But these (and many others) are returning to Chicagoland in recent years, in part because of the more welcoming home humans are learning to keep, celebrate, and protect for them. Poet and environmental educator Robb Telfer will discuss some of these exciting stories of nature returning to our country's third largest city.
This program is in conjunction with the exhibit From Swamps to Parks: Building Chicago's Public Spaces, on display now at Harold Washington Library Center in the 9th floor Exhibit Hall.
