Wild Mile Walking Tour

May 9, 2024

Come visit the world’s first floating eco-park!

The Wild Mile is the flagship project of Chicago-based nonprofit Urban Rivers, creating a wildlife sanctuary in the heart of the city. On this walking tour, one of our knowledgeable team members will lead participants through the Wild Mile, explaining the project’s history, architecture, ecology, and more.

The tour will take 30 minutes, with plenty of time for questions. We’ll meet at the entrance to the Wild Mile, behind REI. This event will repeat on a monthly basis, though the date and time may change according to seasonal needs.

If you’d like a tour but can’t make it to any available tour dates, email team@urbanriv.org, and we’d be happy to set up a time to show you around!
