The natural, cultural, and industrial heritage of the south side is experiencing a rebirth.  Learn about our surrounding area’s abundant natural ecosystems and sustainable economic growth initiatives, and how you can play a part. Suellen Burns, Senior Advisor with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for Millennium Reserve, an ambitious initiative of Governor Quinn in collaboration with more than 50 public, private, and nonprofit partners, will share some of the projects that the Reserve has supported to-date and describe how other community-based initiatives can be involved in this new process.

Joining Burns is Eboni Senai Hawkins, Co-Founder of the Chicago chapter of Red Bike & Green (RBG), a national organization promoting healthy living through cycling. She will share how the Reserve provides a robust network to continue her organization’s successes on Chicago’s south side and amplify the impact of other community-building social arts projects being championed by Red Bike & Green – Chicago, including Fultonia and 200 Pedals.

Pedal to the Metal: From Biking to Restoration is part of the Despres Family Memorial Lecture Series. It takes place April 23, 2014 at Blackstone Library, 4904 S. Lake Park Ave. at 6:30 pm.
