How would you like to spend your Saturday in a marsh?
Would you consider this, “marsh madness”?
Loyola University Chicago’s Office of Sustainability is planning a field trip to Calumet Millennium Reserve on Saturday, where it will visit Hegewisch Marsh, Indian Ridge and Big Marsh to examine environmental changes.
The field trip will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Loyola students are invited to attend.
Here is more information regarding the trip from The Office of Sustainability newsletter:
Governor Quinn and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) are developing the Millennium Reserve initiative in the Calumet region of northeast Illinois. Millennium Reserve is designed to transform the Calumet area into a one-of-a-kind public destination that honors the cultural and industrial past; protects and enhances the natural ecosystems; supports healthy and prosperous communities and residents; and stimulates vigorous and diverse economic growth.
This field trip will visit Hegewisch Marsh, Indian Ridge and Big Marsh to see the transformation taking place. Don’t miss it!
- Location: Meet at the Lake Shore Campus shuttle stop
- Please RSVP in advance
