The exhibition, held in the McKinley Park field house, displayed the results of two photo classes on Saturdays in August 2021, with all an initiative of the district's Natural Areas Community Stewardship Program in partnership with The Nature Conservancy.

As previously reported here in the McKinley Park News, photographer Rebecca Memoli taught the first on August 14, and stewardship program manager Lucy Gomez-Fellciano provided instruction in the iNaturalist app during the second session on Saturday, August 21.

 

Program participants received prints of their own work to take home, as well as a gift card.

The photos remain on display in the Blue Room of the McKinley Park field house for public viewing, with access subject to Chicago Park District COVID-19 safety guidelines.
