Nature Speaks - Forest Preserves of Cook
County - 100 Years Documentary
On Thursday January 26th our good friends John McCabe and Kristin Da Pra make a return visit to present the acclaimed documentary “Chicago’s True Nature: The Forest Preserves of Cook County.”
Produced by the The Forest Preserves of Cook County, in partnership with WYCC PBS Chicago and Juneteenth Productions, the hour-long documentary captures the sights and sounds within the Forest Preserves as it marked its 100th anniversary throughout 2015. Audiences will see and learn about the benefits of nature, the impact of open land to our quality of life and what lies ahead in the next century for the one of the oldest and largest forest preserve systems in the nation.
As most of you know, John is the Director of the Department of Resource Management for the Forest Preserve District of Cook County and Kristin is the Stewardship Aid/ Volunteer Resources for the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. This dynamic husband and wife team will present this fantastic documentary and take questions and answers immediately after.
The presentation will take place at the Prospect Heights Public Library's Borland meeting room and will start promptly at 7:00. Nature Speaks is free admission but registration is necessary.
