From Bob Porter:

Hi all…

I just wanted to invite you to next Thursdays (April 9th) Wild Ones meeting here at the nature center (5801 N. Pulaski Rd., Chgo).  I’ve attached the description.  It should be very interesting.  Lauren works with us and has said that the discussions between Omsted historians and Park district restoration ecologists are often very interesting as folks often have differing views on how to go forward.  It starts at 7pm at the nature center.  Hope to see you here.

Thursday, April 9th, 7 pm:  The Jackson Park Natural Areas Project:  An Ecological Restoration Designed in the Olmsted Style

Join Lauren Umek, Project Manager for the Chicago Park District, as she discusses how a team of ecologists, landscape architects, engineers, planners and historians worked together to restore Jackson Park.  Originally designed by the renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and home to the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition, the restoration of this park combines historic preservation, as well as native habitat restoration principles to create a high quality experience for humans, plants and animals as well.  Meet at the Nature Center at 7:00 pm.
