Get Involved

Erika Hasle, Conservation Ecologist, Keller Science Action Center

Science in action, everyone can play a part.

Inspired by the Abbott Hall of Conservation Restoring Earth exhibit? Learn how you (and your family!) can get involved in local conservation. Below, find ways to participate in hands-on conservation throughout the Chicago region. Become a “citizen scientist” like those in Restoring Earth who volunteer in local preserves. Learn about local natural history by becoming stewards of nature. Take action at home by making conservation-minded choices about what plants to use in your garden. Conservation is a lifestyle we can all practice daily. Explore how to get involved...
