 THE NATURE OF OUR CHANGED WORLD

The Fox River Valley Hound Heritage Foundation in association with Barrington’s White House will present a panel discussion on the impact of the Covid 19 virus on Air, Water, Habitat and Wildlife in the Fox River Valley, Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 4 pm at the Barrington Hills Riding Center arena, 361 Bateman Road, Barrington Hills, IL 60010.  There will be a limited number of tickets available for $30 in the arena and $10 tickets for online webinar viewing.  Co-sponsored by the Barrington Area Conservation Trust and the Conservation Foundation, the event promises to be an insightful look at the short and long term effects of the Covid 19 pandemic on our way of life.

Questions to be explored include the following: Will changes in human behavior on the environment wrought by the virus be temporary or long lasting (e.g. less car and airplane commuting/more webinar meetings)? What species have thrived during the pandemic with human stay at home orders?   How have public lands been affected in the Fox River Valley forest preserves and parks?

The panelists for this forum may include Jeff Mengler, Senior Project Scientist at Hey and Associates and President for the Fox River Ecosystem Partnership; Gary Swick, President of Friends of the Fox River Valley; Wendy Paulson, Nature Educator/Chairman Bobolink Foundation; Jack Pizzo, Senior Ecologist and Landscape Architect of Pizzo and Associates, Ltd. and Arnold Randall, General Superintendent of the Forest Preserves of Cook County. The symposium will be presided over by Robert McGinley, President of the Fox River Valley Hound Heritage Foundation and moderated by Judy Freeman, Chief Operating Officer for Hound Heritage.
