  • Lake Calumet has long been a neglected and even abused part of the City of Chicago. Yet, it remains the largest body of water within the city limits and an area that hold promise for restoration from its days as a dumping ground for industry. The Southeast Environmental Task Force invited folks to come to the shores of this lake on Earth Day 2015 to look for birds and other wildlife and reflect on what has been and what might be for this once natural but now quite unnatural area.

Nance Klehm and The Ground Rules

  • Nance Klehm calls herself a steward of the earth and has been described as a "renegade researcher." Regardless of labels, she is a person looking for solutions to the problems created by the degredation of our soils. That's why she has created a program called The Ground Rules, which is also the subject of an Indiegogo Campaign. Among other things, it helps people find new connections with the land on which they live by re-examining the food waste they create.
