Be apart of the "Restore the Canopy, Plant a Tree" initiative which empowers the residents of Cook County to participate in actively restoring our region's tree canopy and movement to reduce the chances of future flooding.
 

 
The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District has partnered with the American Indian Center to get people excited about planting 18-inch oak saplings throughout the county.

 
The AIC has 24 Oak Saplings that are looking for a new home. Each sampling has the ability to grow into a mighty oak- in the right environment. If you have a space that can support the growth of an Oak Tree please contact fawn@aicchicago.org

We at AIC want to let you know about research led by Professor Doug Medin at Northwestern University. His study team is doing research about the natural world in a study called Cultural Processes in Learning About Ecosystems. They are interested in what people think about ecological relationships and how that is affected by their culture. 
 

 
If you are an adult (age 25+) or have a child (ages 6 - 14), would you be interested in taking part or allowing you child to take part in this study? Participation may involve:

 
a. taking a walk in a forest or neighborhood with your child. OR
b. Looking at pictures, words, or other items and sorting them or describing relationships between them, and giving reasons why you think so

 
There are no right or wrong answers; the researchers are just interested in what you think. You will be compensated by the researchers $20 for 30 minute tasks OR $40 for hour-long tasks.

 
If you would be interested in participating or if you have any questions, please contact Forrest Bruce at forrest.bruce@northwestern.edu. If you know of someone who might be interested in participating, the study team would appreciate it if you could spread the word.Please feel free to forward this email to friends or family who might want to take part in this research opportunity.
