Inside, Out & About: An Invitation to Explore

Join Friends on a river tour to well known and little seen reaches of the Chicago and Calumet River System through Inside, Out & About where you can learn about the people who make them special and their natural wonders.

With programs in person starting summer 2021, the Inside, Out, & About virtual experience includes information about the sites we visit, their history, health, plant and animal life, family activities, community connections and health and wellness. Studies show that as little has 120 minute weeks can improve physical health and mental wellbeing. 

Online programs are in English and Spanish.
