Campus Ecology Tour

9:00am - 10:00am CDT August 26

Join Professor Glenn Adelson, Director of the Environmental Studies Program, in an ecological tour through this special environment that is Lake Forest. Here on the shores of Lake Michigan we sit on glacial moraine and ravine ecosystems that do not exist quite like this anywhere else in the world. Learn about our resident species as we stroll through the Shooting Star Savannah on Middle Campus and end in the Campus Garden behind the Glen Rowan House.
