Openlands Announces the Explore Your Lakes and Rivers Series

April 20, 2016

Openlands is excited to announce our Explore Your Lakes and Rivers Series. This program, which runs from spring to fall, highlights many waterways that we have hiding in plain sight. Did you know you can explore the Chicago River at Ping Tom Park or that there is a lagoon at Garfield Park? There will also be opportunities to check out the Little Calumet River at Kickapoo Woods and Powderhorn Lake among other opportunities.

Most dates include beginner friendly paddling, as well as on-land activities, such as guided family bird walks and stewardship to help maintain natural areas in the parks. Some of the events will be multilingual (Spanish, Cantonese) and pre-registration is required for some activities. All the events are free and open to the public.

With 11 dates to choose from there is sure to be an opportunity for everyone.

Be sure to visit for upcoming opportunities!
