Debra Shore

Biography

A native of Chicago, Debra grew up in Dallas, Texas, and lived for a time in Baltimore and Providence, Rhode Island. After returning to Chicago in 1982, Debra became an active volunteer in local conservation initiatives, especially helping to restore the forest preserves along the North Branch of the Chicago River in Cook County. This work taught her that the prairies, wetlands and oak woods are the real Discovery Zone in our region, essential for our quality of life, for cleaning our air and water, for recreation and contemplation.
