Last week, a group of lab managers from across the City Colleges of Chicago met at Olive-Harvey College to attend a lab safety training meeting and discussion. Dr. Oliver Pergams of Olive-Harvey led them out on a tour of the beautiful wetland on campus, a 10-acre space that is home to white-tailed deercoyotesred-winged blackbirdsprairie crayfish, butterflies, dragonflies, and many native plants.

One of the images features a rare, native orchid species that is popping up all over the wetland. Can you spot it?
