Join Us at the Wild Things Conference

Get the latest news, research, and happenings in Chicago conservation at the Wild Things Conference.  We are excited to have our own track at the conference; our track will focus on things people can do on small and large tracts of privately held land.  Speakers are people who think their yards are nature preserves and treat them accordingly.  Instead of the standard landscaping (lawns and ornamentals, often invasive species), these people have gone the wild route and have been rewarded with the return of nature in their own yards. Learn how Chicago Living Corridors is working to connect all of these bits of land.  We are the “G” sessions except for 6G.
