Connecting People to Nature in the Chicago Region: The Field Museum's Journey of Discovery (First of two sessions)
Mark Bouman, Chicago Region Program Director, Keller Science Action Center, Field Museum

Grace member Mark Bouman leads the Field Museum's interdisciplinary environmental conservation and cultural heritage work in the Chicago region. He’ll talk about how a collections-based natural history museum, came to take on the future-oriented mission of “seeking solutions for a brighter future rich in nature and culture”? He’ll share examples of this work on-the-ground, both inside the Museum and across the landscape of the Chicago region and reflect on the intersections of the ecological and social scientific work of the Museum and the concerns of people of faith.
