Earth Day Walk in McDonald Woods

Sunday, April 21
2 p.m. 

Take a timely walk in the Garden’s McDonald Woods in honor of Earth Day. 

See a variety of spring blooming wildflowers such as Virginia bluebells, great white trillium, yellow trout lily, Mayapple, and toothwort (weather dependent) and learn more about their ephemeral presence in the woods. Find out about on-going restoration efforts as well as how you can join Budburst, a Chicago Botanic Garden community science program. 

A 45-minute guided walk takes place at 2 p.m. or take a self-guided walk anytime. The short trail loop is about 1/3 mile; the longer trail loop is about 2/3 mile. 

Dress for the weather. If winds are 20 or more miles per hour or if there is heavy rain, the program will be cancelled. 

Free; regular parking and Garden admission fees apply for nonmembers.
Meet at the McDonald Woods Shelter
