Field Museum Partnership

The SMHEC Sustainability Task Force met with the Sustainability staff of the Field Museum to discuss sustainability efforts at the Field Museum, their outreach programs, and how SMHEC can partner with the museum. The museum has a great interest in the SMHEC region- the ecologically significant Calumet region of Chicagoland as well as the rare oak savannas near Kankakee. The group developed several opportunities and will follow up with them in the next several months. The first connection is helping the museum hire a local student as a program intern.
