Ecological Restoration in Chicago's Calumet Region: An Open House

  • Bridgeport Coffeehouse Hyde Park 5030 South Cornell Avenue (map)

Share some Bridgeport Coffee and snacks with Wetlands Initiative ecologists working to restore native habitats in Chicago's Calumet region on the city's Southeast Side, and find out how you can be a part of it!

Once one of North America's most biodiverse wetland areas, the Calumet region is now heavily marked by a century of industrial use. 

Join the collaborative effort to bring back Calumet ecosystems where native plants and wildlife can again thrive. TWI's partners in this work include Audubon Great Lakes, the Chicago Park District, and others.

You'll also have the chance to enter a free raffle for some fabulous Patagonia gear!
