Monty, Rose & How a City Came Together to Protect an Endangered Shorebird - What NYC Can Learn From Chicago About Wildlife Protection
You are invited to a special webinar event on Thursday, January 19th at 8pm ET.

Chicago has risen to the occasion on multiple levels to protect Piping Plovers. From a captivated and supportive public to nonstop press headlines, committed volunteer efforts and close coordination across local, state and federal agencies, Chicago has created an example to follow for urban wildlife protection.

Come hear about the dynamic Piping Plover couple who brought everyone together to protect an imperiled shorebird species. Speakers will include: Tamima Itani, lead volunteer coordinator, Chicago Piping Plovers; Morgan Greene, journalist and former Chicago Tribune environment reporter; Louise Clemency, field supervisor, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Chicago Field Office; Brad Semel, endangered species recovery specialist, Illinois Department of Natural Resources and Matthew Freer, assistant director - environmental conservation & engagement, Chicago Park District.

This will be a fantastic discussion, honoring the legacy of Monty & Rose and the movement they inspired. You will not want to miss this!
