    Spring on the Prairie - James Woodworth
    James Woodworth Prairie Preserve, 9845 N Milwaukee Ave, Glenview, IL 60025, USA

    See a high quality tallgrass prairie in the gorgeous full bloom of spring! James Woodworth Prairie is a 5-acre remnant of Grade A black soil prairie and swale, spared from development in the 1950s by prairie advocates and currently owned by the University of Illinois at Chicago. In mid-May, the prairie is carpeted with species such as wood betony, violet wood sorrel, yellow stargrass, hoary puccoon, prairie phlox, bastard toadflax, Seneca snakeroot, alumroot, and many others!
    Hike leader Erin Faulkner has been conducting research and assisting with prairie management at JWP since 2002 and knows its botanical treasures like the back of her hand.

    The parking lot at the interpretive center only holds a few cars; if it fills up, alternate parking can be found across Milwaukee Ave at the Salvation Army Thrift Store. The site is pretty small and vegetation is short, so you can't miss us! Give a holler from the parking lot and we'll direct you to a trail.

    Hike at Illinois Beach State Park
    42.421798, -87.808258

    Hike the trail at Illinois' first nature preserve with your fellow native plant enthusiasts! See dozens of rare natives and spring wildflowers in multiple unique and rare habitats including beach dunes and pannes.

    You already have the day off, come join us at 9:30 AM at the Nature Center, rain or shine. Dress for the weather and be prepared to get your feet wet: we recommend wearing sandals or waterproof boots.

    After a lunch at Culver's (or bring your own) we usually drive a few minutes north to Chiwaukee Prairie for the afternoon, which often has wet trails. The trip to Chiwaukee is optional, but spectacular.
