Chicago Currents

Celebrating Chicago’s Waterways
Join us for a song cycle exploring the ecology and history of Chicago’s waterways. Our program will guide you through the pre-colonial era, Chicago’s non-indigenous settlement by Jean Baptiste Point du Sable, to its development into a major industrial center. We invite you to connect with Chicago’s vibrant landscape and the rewilding movement hoping to nurture our home for generations to come.
