Join the Chicago Park District and the Geographic Society of Chicago conduct a Bioblitz at Big Marsh, the Park District's 278-acre property on the southeast side of Chicago in the area commonly known as the Calumet Area Reserve. Once an active industrial property, the site was acquired by the Park District in 2011 and opened as a new public park in 2016. The vision of Big Marsh is to provide a new type of recreation in Chicago that marries habitat restoration with public use. Participants will team up with educators and experts, using the free iNaturalist app to document for the first time the species of flora and fauna at Big Marsh. Many local organizations will be on site with information and food and snacks will be provided.
