Barrington's White House to present 'The Shedd Aquarium: Authoring Chicago's Water Story'
Join Barrington's White House and Dr. Bridget C. Coughlin, president and CEO of Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, for a deep dive into the ways the aquarium is making an impact on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan.
The event will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, in the third floor ballroom. Tickets are $20. This event is entirely in-person; no virtual tickets are available. Barrington's White House is at 145 W. Main St.
As one of the country's oldest aquariums with more than 2 million visitors annually, this world-famous institution is poised to make significant contributions to animal life in rivers and lakes in our area and beyond.
Coughlin was appointed president and chief executive officer of Shedd Aquarium in 2016. Under her leadership, Shedd has welcomed nearly 10 million aquarium guests, diverted more than 21,000 pounds of plastic from lakes and rivers, and published more than 100 research papers.
A nature lover and scientist both at heart and by training, Coughlin is passionate about animal life in oceans, rivers and lakes. Her commitment to Shedd's mission of sparking compassion, curiosity and conservation for the aquatic animal world extends well beyond the walls of Shedd Aquarium. Free wine and beer will be available.
