FOR ENVIRONMENT & CULTURE

Lime Hollow Trails

You belong on our wonderful trails.

Known for its marl ponds, streams, peat bog, beaver ponds, and diverse wildlife and plant life – the Lime Hollow Center currently encompasses and protects hundreds of acres of unspoiled land. Current resources and points of interest include:

Please respect our NO DOGS policy.

Over ten miles of well-marked trails -- our most popular feature! Informative viewing stations and displays interpret the ecosystem for you. (Maps provided.)

Visitor & Education Centers – with interactive exhibits, nature specimens, and a gift shop!

Outdoor ampitheater & nature playground – a favorite of visiting children and a staple our day-camps and public programs.

Chicago Bog – a truly unique geological feature, with an equally unique wildlife and fauna profile and self-guided interpretive trail.

A dedicated staff – augmented by a corps of volunteers and guest naturalists, Lime Hollow's full- and part-time staff are credentialed professionals well-practiced in environmental education and adventure camp management. (Plus, they're just “good people!”)
