CW Cafe

The Chicago Wilderness Cafe series serves up conversations on topics related to our Chicago Wilderness focus areas. Virtually connect with your colleagues to share ideas, pose questions and find out what's happening around the region.

Registration is open to the public and is free. 

Next Cafe is October 29 at 12 noon: Mapping the Green Vision 

From the Atlas of Biodiversity to the Green Infrastructure Vision, maps have always been important to Chicago Wilderness. What role should maps have, and how would you use them, as CW moves to implement its Green Vision for the region? We'll discuss a survey of map users conducted in spring, and get your thoughts about a proposed mapping hub for CW.

Online registration is available until: 11:30 am 10/29/2020

Chicago Wilderness Partners: Create a Cafe session

Are you a Chicago Wilderness partner with a conservation success story you'd like to share or a topic to introduce and discuss with your peers? We'd love to have you create a Cafe session! 

Cafes are conducted via Zoom and typically last 1 hour. Your session should relate to one or more of the CW focus areas of Advocacy and Awareness, Climate, Communities, Green Economy, Planning and Policy, or Science and Natural Resource Management.

We'll help you decide on a format for your session and can provide template slides or other assistance as needed. We'll also promote your session on social media and in our monthly newsletter. 

Download our Cafe template for guidelines on how to create and hold your session. 

Or contact Laura Reilly to talk through your Cafe session idea. Thanks for sharing your expertise with the Chicago Wilderness network!
