We had another amazing Lunchtime Lecture today with Laura Barghusen, the Aquatic Ecologist at Openlands 🌿🛶
Today we learned about the African American Heritage Water Trail along the Calumet River. This trail is rich with history from the Underground Railroad to the Birth of the environmental justice movement.
To experience this history from the perspective of the river, visit paddleillinoiswatertrails.org for information about how and where to paddle to trail! 🛶☀️
