The Calumet Stewardship Initiative (CSI) is a coalition of more than 40 organizations, including the Chicago Field Museum, the Nature Conservancy, the National Park Service, and the University of Chicago. CSI promotes a sustainable relationship between people and nature in the Calumet region of Northwest Indiana and Northeast Illinois, envisioning a region marked by vibrant communities and cultures, healthy natural areas, and a strong economy.
Scott Kuchta, Tryon Farm Institute President, will lead hikers on a tour across Tryon Farm’s rich and varied 170-acre restored landscape that integrates native communities such as sedge and prairie meadows and wooded “flatwood” wetlands, farmed hay meadows, and a sustainable residential community.
