Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods is deeply honored to grant the 2020 Distinguished Environmental Leadership Award at the Smith Nature Symposium to Sue Halpern and Bill McKibben. They are humbled by their powerful writing and activism on behalf of nature and the climate, both as individuals and as a couple. Together, they have touched millions of young people and, in the spirit of this award, made a valuable contribution to the world of nature.

Donna La Pietra and Bill Kurtis will grace the stage as Masters of Ceremonies of the Smith Nature Symposium. Their contributions to news-broadcasting, documentary film production, and conservation have made them longtime legends in Chicagoland.


Multi Grammy Award nominee violinist Philippe Quint and former “Chicagoan of the Year in Classical Music” Vladimir Kulenovic perform Claude Debussy’s soulful Clair De Lune directly from the Brushwood Center. 

It will be an amazing evening!
