Chicago Botanic Garden is world renowned for its work in this area and since starting at the Garden in 2005, Jennifer has worked to ensure that in our increasingly urban world, people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds have access to green space and to high quality nature-based education and enrichment programmes.

Take part in this interactive webinar to find out how Chicago Botanic Garden has got to where it is today, learn about their current projects and get hints and tips that you can use at your organisation.

This is part of the Communities in Nature Webinars brought to you by BGCI (Botanic Gardens Conservation International) on the last Wednesday of every month May-September. Others in the series include:

  • Fundraising for social inclusion with Sharon Willoughby Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
  • Working with diverse audiences with Poppy Szaybo, Diversity Heritage Group


Communities in Nature supports botanic gardens to grow their social role and work with their communities on common issues of social and environmental importance, for the enduring benefit of those communities, the gardens themselves, and towards a sustainable future for our planet. Head to BGCI's website for more information about how to do this at your site.
