 Diverse Voices, Green Vision, United Region

The vision of Chicago Wilderness is to inspire and cultivate healthy communities for both people and nature through broad participation from all who call this region home. We believe Chicago Wilderness will more effectively support the health and resiliency of our natural ecosystems when all communities and identities are represented and working together towards that common goal.  This includes urban community groups, backyard gardeners, rural farmers, corporate campuses, municipalities, land managers, government agencies, institutions, students individuals and groups of all backgrounds, race, gender and culture.
