The Prospect Heights Slough is one of the few remaining naturally occurring wetlands in the Chicagoland region. Noted on the original land surveys from
the 1800s, the Slough is habitat to thousands of insects, birds, fish, macro-invertebrates, mammals, and amphibians. The Prospect Heights Natural Resources
Commission is restoring the slough to its natural state and Dr. Agnes Wojnarski, chairman of the commission and a physician at Swedish Covenant Hospital, will
lead this program to discuss the project. Refreshments at 11:30 am, Meeting at 12:15 pm and Program 1:00 pm.
