Preserving an Oasis: A Portrait of Humans and Nature at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum

April 22, 2022 | 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Ravenswood Media and Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum present the history of the Calumet region as seen through the lens of the Anthropocene, our current epoch when humans have overwhelmed the Earth’s natural systems. Wolf Lake sits at the epicenter of the Calumet region just 20 miles south of the Nature Museum and its challenges over the last 200 years represent important lessons for humanity navigating the Anthropocene. This event will share these lessons with the public through an evening of a film screening, presentations from scientists and environmental historians and end with questions from the audience.
