Hannah Lauer, a Loyola student who was an intern for Chicago Audubon during Summer 2014, described her experience volunteering for ecological restoration at LUREC."Through the restoration work at LUREC I realized that sustainability requires action, hard work, an open mind, and taking responsibility for the environment in which we live. I saw the power and impact that groups of people can have on the environment when they unite together for a common cause and goal."
Hannah still participates in monthly restoration work days. "I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge through my service work at LUREC. The time I have spent there is invaluable to me."
