West Ridge Nature Preserve, Park Advisory Council (PAC)

Chicago Park District

The Preserve Will Be Fine

Without Us for a While.

Be Safe. Prepare for a Joyful Return.

Locked Out for Now

Hopefully, the worst of the pandemic will be over by summer, enabling us to reopen the preserve and resume our PAC  activities. 


We have planned bird and nature walks, kids' fishing clinics, citizen science monitoring, toddler play group and so much more. 


It appears that we will have to forgo our early June "Hello Summer" Festival and are especially sad about that but hope to hold a Fifth Anniversary event in the fall.


In the meantime, check out the activity boxes below for an overview of what we do. And if you're interested in volunteering when we reopen, let us know on the Contact Page.
