Did you know that the Calumet Region is one of the most bio-diverse locations in our region and home to an astounding – 2,250+ species of plants and animals including threatened species like the black crown night heron and pie-billed grebes ! That’s more species diversity than Brookfield Zoo, the Shedd Aquarium, and Lincoln Park Zoo COMBINED!
Please join the Calumet Stewardship Initiative, the Department of Environmental and C3 for a unique restoration workday at Hegewisch Marsh. We will be helping with vernal pool planting, an opportunity only available in early summer. If you have yet to be a part of a workday in Calumet, please do not miss this opportunity to protect and support one of the most lovely and unique region in our fair city.
This is a great opportunity for students, families and nature lovers alike to gain hands-on experience in a beautiful nature area. Please join us!
