Author Talk at Brushwood Nature Center

  • Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods 21850 N Riverwoods Rd Deerfield, IL, 60015 United States (map)

We usually think of cities as the domain of humans—but we are just one of thousands of species that call the urban landscape home. Chicago residents knowingly move among familiar creatures like squirrels, pigeons, and dogs, but might be surprised to learn about all the leafhoppers and water bears, black-crowned night herons and bison, beavers and massasauga rattlesnakes that are living alongside them. 

Join Gavin Van Horn, editor of City Creatures—a book with a unique and accessible mix of essays, poetry, paintings, and photographs—for a presentation on the astonishing diversity of urban wildlife that is all around us.
