SUST 220 Field Trip to the Chicago Portage National Historic Site (Lyons, IL) and Canal Origins Park (Chicago). Photographs at Chicago Portage by Leanne Strickler; at Canal Origins by Ken Schmidt.
After the first leg of our day's field explorations at the Stickney Wastewater Treatment Plant of the MWRD, we convened for a picnic and a woodland hike at the Chicago Portage National Historic Site in Lyons, IL. Here we gather around the statue of Marquette and Jolliet to each lunch.
