In the Chicago River, fish populations have suffered since the river became a steel-lined channel, but can floating garden islands restore a more natural habitat? Our region offers spectacular night sky views, but will new satellites mar their beauty? And how are Great Lakes parks coping with COVID-19 and record-setting lake levels?
In this “watch party,” originally broadcast on Facebook, Great Lakes Now Program Director Sandra Svoboda chats with Pam Barnes from Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Austin Happel from the Shedd Aquarium and Nick Lake from the Adler Planetarium.
They answer questions from the Facebook audience, and take a deeper dive into how to build new fish habitats, understand more about the skies above the Great Lakes, and visit the region’s national parks. More about the episode is HERE.
