Our tour will begin at 4:30pm at the Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg. This is an exciting opportunity for a expert-led tour from 4:30-5:45pm of one of Schaumburg’s most important and valuable conservation areas: Spring Valley. Here’s a link to the Nature Center’s location at 1111 E. Schaumburg Road, which is only a 10-12 minutes drive from RU’s Schaumburg Campus.

RSVP to Prof. Bryson (mbryson@roosevelt.edu) if you plan to attend the tour, and please indicate if you’re driving yourself or wish to carpool from the Schaumburg Campus. (Carpoolers should meet up at the Info Desk at 4pm for the carpool and leave at 4:10pm sharp.)

Prof. Bryson has arranged for Spring Valley director/naturalist Dave Brooks of the Schaumburg Park District to walk us through Spring Valley’s prairie, woodland, and wetland ecosystems, thus highlighting the connections among biodiversity, planning and open space conservation, parkland management, and sustainability. We’ll also learn about the major renovations underway at the Spring Valley Nature Center which are meant to advance the environmental education of the facility with a new focus on sustainability.
