Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Wednesday, January 10th from 12:00PM-1:00PM to discuss professional development and career plans with this month's featured guest: Lydia Scott, Director of the Chicago Region Trees Initiative at The Morton Arboretum.

The CRTI was founded by The Morton Arboretum, an internationally recognized arboretum with the mission to collect and study trees, shrubs, and other plants from around the world. The Arboretum maintains living collections and has a cohort of scientists studying a wide variety of issues related to trees. The CRTI is a regional collaborative of organizations working together to improve the health of the urban forest in the Chicago Region.  CRTI provides education and outreach to landowners and managers; works to improve policies, local and regional plans, and educate the public on the services and value our urban forest provides. CRTI also has one of the most in depth and extensive urban forestry data bases in the U.S. This data base informs the action and direction of CRTI. Lydia holds a Master's of Science degree from the University of Illinois in Environmental Science and has 25 years experience in conservation and urban forestry. 

Please Note: This is a members-only event limited to five (5) participants. As with every WP+D Small Networking Lunch, registration will open at 12:00PM on the first day of the month during which the lunch will be held. Registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis and typically fills up quickly. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch; food is not provided. Meetings are held in Randolph Square on the 1st Floor of the Cultural Center. Look out for one of our board members and WP+D signage.
