MNSPC Monthly Meeting
April 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
Program: Crusin’ Calumet
by Jessica Becker
- This presentation will explore how ancient lakes and booming industry shaped the Calumet area into what it is today.
- Jessica Becker graduated in 2014 with a degree in Zoology from the University of Wyoming. It was a tropical ecology course in Ecuador in 2013 that sparked her love for birding. After graduation she continued to use her knowledge of ecology and local wildlife to support research, but also began using it to educate others about the unique wilderness around them, even in Chicagoland. Today, she works for the Forest Preserves of Cook County as a Program Specialist who helps connect people with nature through hands on environmental education. You can catch her on her monthly webcast “Ask a Bird Nerd” and (when COVID allows) leading bird walks around the southern parts of Cook County. She is admittedly not a good photographer, but can direct you to some of the best site.
