Questions to be explored include the following:
-Will changes in human behavior on the environment wrought by the virus be temporary or long-lasting (e.g. less car and airplane commuting/more webinar meetings)?
-What species have thrived during the pandemic with human stay-at-home orders?
-How have public lands been affected in the Fox River Valley forest preserves and parks?
The panelists for this forum may include Jeff Mengler, Senior Project Scientist at Hey and Associates and President for the Fox River Ecosystem Partnership; Gary Swick, President of Friends of the Fox River Valley; Wendy Paulson, Nature Educator/Chairman Bobolink Foundation; Jack Pizzo, Senior Ecologist and Landscape Architect and Arnold Randall, General Superintendent of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. The symposium will be presided over by Robert McGinley, President of the Fox River Valley Hound Heritage Foundation and moderated by Judy Freeman, Chief Operating Officer for Hound Heritage.
