I think the best part about living in a large city is being able to attend FREE programs that I know I never would have attended if I had to pay. The Chicago Park District is having Family Adventure Day- Leave No Child Inside Month Kick-off event on May 21st. This event will start at 10am and ends at 2pm. The cost is FREE at is located at Northerly Island
The Chicago Park District is giving families a chance to get down and dirty with nature play. Play in the mud, build a hideout, catch a fish, or create outdoor art. This event will also be releasing our ‘Passport to Nature.’
This event/program is designed to help Chicagoans of all ages experience the wonder of nature right here in the city, the Nature Oasis program was launched by the Chicago Park District in the summer of 2001. This exciting program is currently based at parks with large natural areas such as, Gompers, Humboldt, Jackson, Washington, Northerly Island and South Shore Cultural Center and works to increase environmental awareness by offering a wide range of nature-based programming throughout the seasons. These programs and events are planned so that you, your friends and family can come to a local park to get inspired, get in touch with nature, get your hands dirty or simply enjoy the beauty of the seasons.
