Urban Nature Walk

Meet at Exelon Pavilion, Lurie Garden

Urban Nature Walk

Join artist Lucas Foglia and author Gavin Van Horn (Center for Humans and Nature) for a guided urban nature walk. Starting at the Lurie Garden, participants will be guided on an excursion that explores the human relationship to nature within the urban context. Discover native plant landscapes and pollinator pathways, as well as the way natural spaces can awaken our sense of connection to the built environment.  Laura Ekasetya, director and head horticulturist at the Lurie Garden, will share insights about the diverse landscape and the community of life that the garden supports. From there the group will walk south through Grant Park and engage in a contemplative activity. The walk will culminate at the MoCP to view the exhibition Lucas Foglia: Human Nature.
