Immigrant Landscape

  • July 13, 2019

From dandelions planted by European settlers to the Norway maples that now line suburban streets, this interactive walk will explore how people have altered the landscape of Illinois to serve their economic needs.

Historians and naturalists will lead the discussion of how now-common plants reveal how local Illinois communities fit into the story of the largest change in a single landscape in U.S. history.

Light refreshments will be served after the walk.
