Green Connections Tour -- discovering sustainable Oak Park & River Forest!

On Saturday, September 24, 1:00-4:00pm, Green Community Connections, along with other organizations will sponsor a self-guided tour of selected green sites in Oak Park and River Forest. The event is scheduled in conjunction with’s Moving Planet day,and is designed with cyclists and pedestrians in mind.   Public, commercial and residential destinations will showcase green buildings, sustainable landscaping, community gardening, urban chicken farming, biodiverse open space, and other features of sustainable, low-carbon community life. Each site will feature a tour or demonstration to introduce visitors to the story behind the initiative and how it contributes to sustainability in our community. This is a great opportunity to showcase the great things that real people and organizations are doing already and exchange ideas for what we might want to try in the future.
