Could a park, a forest preserve, a green space have negative impacts on a community? This moderated panel invites an open discussion about Environmental Gentrification and its relation to natural areas management and planning in the Chicago Wilderness area. Panelists will start from a shared working definition, share perspectives from communities directly impacted by Environmental Gentrification in Chicago, give context through current research, and share lessons learned from organizations on the frontlines of advocacy. Learn about local issues, consider tough questions, and join the conversation!
