Nature Events

Enjoy nature in Chicago's parks!

Spending a “green” hour a day can help children and adults reduce stress, lose weight, and increase imagination through play. Nature programs and events are not only about nature education, but about inspiring appreciation, and promoting environmental stewardship.

Need some green hour ideas?  Come out to a Chicago Park District nature event and:

  • Catch a fish
  • Camp
  • Bike
  • Canoe
  • Hike
  • Garden
  • Look for birds
  • Explore 
  • HAVE FUN

Many of the events offered are part of the Nature Oasis program.  The Nature Oasis program helps Chicagoans discover nature right here in the City.  We have a variety of programs that help individuals learn more about nature, discover outdoor recreation and connect with green space in the city. 

Whatever your interest in nature, from adventure recreation to bird watching to exploring different ecosystems, let the Chicago Park District help you find your place in Chicago’s great outdoors.
