You'll never believe you are in Chicago city limits in this rare dune-and-swale landscape. It's the most biologically rich area in the City home to ~250 plant species, 2,500 insects and 40 - 100 different kinds of birds, depending on the season. We remove invasive plants, collect native seeds, and enjoy the beauty on the 3rd Saturday of the month (usually) from 9 - noon. Join us as we help care for this unique place. Tools, training, and any guidance provided.
