This 155-acre site in the heart of Chicago, once used as a plant nursery, is currently home to such functions as a recycling facility, senior housing, a city park, a nature center, a 46-acre interpretative ‘nature preserve’… and a an occasional (and controversial) destination for a local deer population.

The event is free to the public.
