Please join the Historic Pullman Garden Club, the Pullman State Historic Site and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency for the third presentation in the garden club's 2017 Winter Lecture Series:
"Chicago's Tree Canopy" with Lydia Scott, Community Trees Program Manager and Director of Chicago Region Trees Initiative at the Morton Arboretum
Sunday March 26, 2017, at 2 pm in the historic Hotel Florence, 11111 S Forrestville Ave, Chicago IL 60628.
The lecture on Chicago's Tree Canopy will seek to answer these questions: What can you do to help trees grow green and thrive? How can you be a tree champion?
"In urban, developed settings like Chicago and our suburbs, the trees that live alongside us face different challenges than trees living in the wild", said Lydia Scott, director of the Chicago Region Trees Initiative, based at The Morton Arboretum. As they consume carbon dioxide while producing oxygen, trees are vital to the health and future of our cities, yet they need human intervention to help them thrive.
This FREE event is open to everyone, refreshments will be served and there will be door prizes. The Pullman Historic District can be reached by taking the 111th Street exit west off of I-94 or via the Metra Electric Train Line, exiting on the 111th St/Pullman stop.
Hope to see you there! For questions, email email@example.com or call 773-568-4669.
