Protect a City Park
* Registration Opens on the 15th of the month prior to the event at 9:00am.*
Join us at Palmisano Park to protect and conserve this hidden urban oasis on Chicago's southwest side, near the heart of Bridgeport. Learn about the fasinating history of how this wetland and priaire ecosystem was once a landfill and quarry. We will be working with the Chicago Park District and the Nature Conservancy.
All ages welcome - this project is best for volunteers ages 5 to adult. We provide all of the needed supplies and a healthy snack. 5 participant maximum per family and all kids must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Additional details will follow a few days prior to the event. Please read the Consent, Release and Waiver of Liability below and click on the link to register.
If the project is full, please join our waitlist and we will contact you if space becomes available.
