Restoration in the Calumet
October 26 open house at Bridgeport Coffee in Hyde Park
The June open house was so much fun we're doing it again, but this time at Bridgeport Coffee's Hyde Park location. Share some coffee and snacks with TWI ecologists working to restore native habitats in Chicago's Calumet region on the city's Southeast Side, and find out how you can be part of it!
2017 fishing season
Fishing at Hennepin & Hopper Lakes now closed for the year
Public fishing at the Dixon Waterfowl Refuge is now closed for 2017 in order to avoid interfering with the fall migration. Dates for the 2018 fishing season will be posted in late winter along with permit application instructions, so check back in the new year.
VISIT THE DIXON WATERFOWL REFUGE
Climb the observation tower, hike a boardwalk trail, paddle through a marsh, or enjoy excellent birdwatching.
Many parts of Midewin are open to the public for hiking, birdwatching, bison viewing, and other activities.
