Book Talk: “Nature is Our Country Club”

Visitors Center, 7 pm
Free presentation; parking $5 or free with advance registration

We welcome local author, artist, educator and naturalist Christopher Cudworth to Cantigny for a presentation based on his latest book, “Nature is Our Country Club.” The book’s focus is on the environmental impact of golf and golf course sustainability. More broadly, it’s about nature appreciation and the many positive aspects of spending time outdoors. Books will be available for purchase and signing.  Whether or not you play golf, we think you will appreciate Chris’s important message.

Those interested are invited to come early for a casual nature walk before the presentation. To join the walk, meet behind the Cantigny Visitors Center (on the fountain side) at 5:30 pm. No sign up is necessary, and binoculars will be available for borrowing.

The new South Grove Beer Garden will be open with food and beverage service until 9 pm. Thomas Linsk (solo piano and vocals) will perform on stage from 5:30 to 8:30.

Advance Registration
