We plan on exploring Chicagoland nature by foot, artfully & thoughtfully. Meet-up for a 4-8 mile hike in some of the best known and off-the-beaten-path natural areas in the city. Pace: somewhat leisurely, with a stop or two for sketching if inspiration strikes. Bring: sketchpad or journal, pencil or pen, water or whiskey. Exploring urban nature. Interested? Let's walk.
