Nature and COVID-19

As we deal with the constantly changing reality of coping with COVID-19, Chicago Wilderness reminds you that nature is always here for you. 

Nature offers us many benefits: wondrous places to explore, as well as opportunities for learning and discovery. Healthy ecosystems also provide us with essential services--such as fresh air, clean water, healthy soil, flood protection, and pollution filtering--that underpin our economy.

Most importantly, in these unprecedented times, appreciating nature--whether from a trail, your backyard, or through your window--is critical to your physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. If you do go outdoors, please follow any local restrictions that are in place. 

Here are some resources from Chicago Wilderness partners and others.
