Youth Group from Faith in Place Tours Southeast Chicago with SETF

Katy Regalado, a youth leader with Faith in place along with fourteen students ages 8-13 were given a Toxic to Treasures tour of the Southeast side by SETF. Member Tom Shepherd along with our Noyce Scholarship Intern, Beatriz Diaz, guided the group through through the wetland complex pointing out areas like Indian Ridge Marsh and Big Marsh and providing important facts about these locations and ecosystems. Beatriz focused on the nearby landfills, their past and current uses and the students experienced first hand the enormity of the trash filled hills.

Boarded and eager to get started with Tour.
