Nature Walk in Lyman Woods
Let's go for a relaxed walk to enjoy the nature at Lyman Woods. Lyman Woods is an amazing Forest Preserve. It features 200 year old Oak Savannah, native prairie lands, and a large expanse of easily accessible marsh lands. It is also an incredible venue to view some of Illinois' most exotic and colorful birds. It's common to see some deers and other animals in the wood. And, of course, it has an abundance of different wild plants. It's a relatively short hike (a mile or so) and we will be going in a relaxed manner to enjoy the surroundings. It would take probably an hour or two. However, we may take some additional small routes if we are still in a mood. The walk will be a perfect place to connect with nature, as well as to socialize, discuss "green" topics, and make new like-minded friends! IT'S MORELS SEASON - PLEASE LET THE EVENT HOST KNOW IF ANY ATTENDEES HAVE A KNOWLEDGE TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENT MUSHROOMS. This event is planned as a joint event with Chicago Hiking, Outdoors, and Social Group ( so expect more good people join us for the hike! Please use "Comments" area in the bottom of the event page to offer/ask for rides and post any general questions or comments.
