City Creatures talk

  • Evanston North Shore Bird Club 2024 McCormick Blvd Evanston, IL (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. The recently published City Creatures: Animal Encounters in the Chicago Wilderness introduces readers to an astonishing diversity of urban wildlife with a unique and accessible mix of essays, poetry, paintings, and photographs. Gavin Van Horn, the co-editor of City Creatures and the director of Cultures of Conservation for the Center for Humans and Nature, will present an illustrated talk on how urban wildlife can further connect us to place and the importance of re-storying Chicagoland, from our backyards to the bioregion.
