Field Museum at Brushwood Center

In 2016, Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods announced a new partnership with The Field Museum. This quarterly speaker series is designed to inform Northern Illinois residents on new and brilliant research underway at The Field Museum - without the long drive to Chicago. This new partnership gives The Field Museum a chance to reach their northern neighbors while allowing the Brushwood Center a chance to further the conversation on important environmental and cultural issues that impact our region and world.
