The Forest Preserves of Cook County is hosting a VIP screening of its documentary Chicago's True Nature: The Forest Preserves of Cook County next Wednesday at the IMAX Theater on Navy Pier.

The hour-long documentary captures the sights and sounds within the Forest Preserves as it marked its 100th anniversary throughout 2015. Audiences will learn about the benefits of nature, the impact of open land to our quality of life and what lies ahead in the next century for the one of the oldest and largest forest preserves in the nation.

The documentary will be followed by a brief discussion on how the Forest Preserves is engaging the next generation of conservationists as well as a Q&A for the audience of partners, allies and leaders of FPCC.

YouTube description:

"The Forest Preserves of Cook County, in partnership with WYCC PBS Chicago and Juneteenth Productions, is proud to present Chicago's True Nature: The Forest Preserves of Cook County.

"Like many natural wonders, the Forest Preserves are 'hidden in plain sight.' While the Preserves are well-known for family parties and cookouts, many are unaware of its vast biodiversity - the flora and fauna of the urban preserves and the diversity of native plants that struggle to flourish against invasive species. Chicago's True Nature takes viewers beyond the picnic groves and introduces them to the nearby wonders of nature.

"Despite living in one of the most densely populated urban areas of the country, Cook County residents are surrounded by nearly 70,000 acres of open space managed by the Forest Preserves. This documentary highlights the conservation and research initiatives, educational programs, volunteer efforts and the wide variety of recreational activities that can be enjoyed right here in Cook County."
