City by the Lake: The Health and Welfare of Chicago's Water
by Kari Hamende
Lake Michigan Shoreline
Most of us have a love affair with Chicago’s water environment. We sail the waters of Lake Michigan, swim along its beaches, fish along its shores. We kayak along the Chicago River, enjoying the architectural treasures that line its banks. 

We bird-watch and critter-check in the wetlands, seldom realizing the impact humans are making on the aquatic ecosystems we love and depend upon. This lecture will focus on those threats and some of the sustainable restoration options which are being implemented. 

Nancy C. Tuchman
Nancy C. Tuchman recently was named to Chicago magazine's Green List ​for making Chicago a more eco-friendly city.
Nancy C. Tuchman, PhD, is Vice Provost of Loyola University Chicago, and Director of the Center for Urban Environmental Research and Policy. Her vision is to raise public awareness of the unsustainable consumption of our Earth’s natural resources with the goal of transforming behavior, developing policy, and inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders. 

Admission is free. 

The Albertus Magnus Society of the St. Catherine of Siena Center cultivates public programming at the intersection of science and religion. The 2012-2013 theme of "Making Waves" explores the chemistry, history, spirituality and geopolitics of water with experts who unravel some of the complex ways this precious resource affects our universe, our planet, and our neighborhood. 

The April 4 event is co-sponsored by the Center for Global Peace through Commerce. For more information, visit dom.edu/ams or contact the Siena Center at (708) 714-9105 or siena@dom.edu.
