Cannon Drive,Chicago, IL              Whydoes this small Forest Preserve on the north side of Chicago matter? JeffSkrentny is well-qualified to answer that question. Jeff has been active in therestoration effort here since its inception, and is the author of the blog My Years Birding at LaBagh Woods, whichchronicles his almost daily (!) visits here. Jeff will share insights gainedfrom spending so much time in this tiny fragment of nature. He will regale uswith a bit of the fascinating history of LaBagh, and then plunge us into themultitudinous variety of life that can be found there. Come hear why this urbanforest fragment matters, actually and metaphorically, beyond its 160-acreboundary.
Program is free to all. Public transit serves the museum (see the CTA Trip Plannerhttp: ) and parking is availble along Cannon Drive.
