Bernard L. Schwartz


Co-authors, Charlotte Adelman and Bernard L. Schwartz, spent their marriage practicing law and sharing their passion for nature. Taking early retirement to concentrate on the environment, the couple turned their back yard into a prairie/savanna, initiated and helped create the two-acre Wilmette Centennial Park Prairie, put conservation liens on undisturbed land and wrote “The Midwestern Native Garden,” winner of the 2012 Helen Hull Award from the National Garden Clubs, “Midwestern Native Shrubs and Trees” and “Prairie Directory of North America.” In 2014, Adelman was awarded an Audubon Chicago Region Habitat Project Conservation Leadership Award.
