Garden Speaker Series Trees and their Value to All

Sun, March 10, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sunday, March 10



Museum of the Grand Prairie, Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, 2 p.m.

For thousands of years, trees have possessed many cultural values and symbolic functions to humans. Countless other forms of wildlife depend heavily on the world’s tree species. Without them, humans and animals would be missing a vital piece of their existence. Join Susan McIntyre, an ecologist with the Prairie Research Institute, for an engaging presentation that will discuss the cultural impact trees have had on wildlife and humans, such as Native Americans and early European Americans. Ms. McIntyre will also offer suggestions to reduce your impact on the natural world and protect crucial natural resources, such as trees. Find out what you can plant or do to help keep trees and the natural world safe for generations to come. Be sure to visit our special outdoor exhibit, Vanishing Acts: Trees Under Threat, to learn more about threatened and endangered trees, and action you can take to save them. Exhibit created by The Morton Arboretum and The Global Trees Campaign. FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or
