Join us to peek behind the scenes to learn how the US Fish & Wildlife Service works to protect, list, and recover some of our most endangered and threatened wildlife and plant species right here in the Chicagoland area. The Chicago Audubon Society welcomes speaker Louise Clemency, Field Supervisor with US Fish & Wildlife who will provide an overview of the species in our area protected under the Endangered Species Act, including which species are proposed to be listed , and recovery efforts thus far. The Piping Plover, Northern Long-eared Bat, Eastern Prairie Fringed Orchid, and Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly are especially interesting and are just a few of the species to be discussed. If you love wildlife and wish to learn more about endangered species and the on-going conservation efforts to save them, you will enjoy this presentation!
