Green and Growing

Episode

A suburban man convinces his neighbors to love native plant gardens. The greenest synagogue in the world. As the Emerald Ash Borer destroys thousands of local trees, researchers try to build a better ash tree. And, a Great Blue Heron nesting colony in Northwest Indiana.

Great Blue Herons

Great Blue Herons nest in tall trees, and in big groups. One such group is just over the state line in Indiana. Because these herons live in a more urban area, some local conservationists say the nesting area is at risk.

Building a Better Ash Tree

The Emerald Ash Borer is destroying trees in our area and across the Midwest. Researchers at the Morton Arboretum are trying to understand the habits of the bug, so that they might find – or create – and ash tree that the tiny green beetle won't find so tasty.

Green Synagogue

For Rabbi Brant Rosen and congregants at the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation in Evanston, being green is natural part of their religious values. So when they needed a larger building for their growing congregation, they built what they believe to be the most environmentally friendly synagogue in the world.
