Alice Hargrave: Paradise Wavering TOURS AT THE MERWIN PRESERVE and FRANKLIN RESEARCH AND DEMONSTRATION FARM
Saturday, September 23, from 9am-1pm
Hargrave’s exhibition provides an opportunity to discuss ecological issues and learn about resources in our area. University Galleries has partnered with several non-profit organizations to develop public programming in conjunction with this exhibition.
In collaboration with ParkLands Foundation and The Nature Conservancy, we will tour the Merwin Nature Preserve and the Franklin Research and Demonstration Farm. The Merwin Preserve, which is located in the Mackinaw Valley watershed, features 19 stations along its hiking trails. At the Franklin Farm in Lexington, Illinois, researchers from The Nature Conservancy and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are “testing a variety of conservation methods, including cover crops, constructed wetlands, and habitat restoration.” For more information, contact Kendra at 309.438.8191 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
