Did you know that there is a traditional carved Hawaiian Tiki at the Evanston Ecology Center?  Read about the artist Johnnie “Keoni” Durant and how this sculpture came to be HERE and check it out on your next visit to the Ladd Arboretum!

There is a beautiful installation of 1,000 Japanese-inspired paper cranes adorned the ceiling of the Ecology Center.  The cranes were created by members of the community in an effort to create "communal hope for peace."  Check out the story HERE.
