Autumnal Walk

Register for our Autumnal Walk

Fall is the perfect time for a walk in the woods -- or the prairie -- or the wetland!  Loyola students and alumni will guide you through the 98 acres on the Loyola University Retreat and Ecology Campus (LUREC) showing you the areas where we have been doing ecological restoration and the native vegetation that has been returning.  Then join us for “brats over buckthorn” and a bonfire of cut invasive vegetation, followed by stories of the land from Jim May, Emmy-award winning story-teller from Woodstock.   

Proceeds will fund student scholarships for study at LUREC.
