About the Event

As the community partner to the Chicago Park District's Osterman Beach Natural Area, EEC volunteers restore and maintain natural dune and open sand habitats. These spaces allow beach-goers to discover and appreciate the beauty of nature in its many forms.

Volunteer stewardship days take place on Sundays and are led by trained Community Stewards. Activities differ by site and time of year, and can include tasks such as litter pickup, trail mulching, invasive plant removal, native plant installation, as well as nature-based activities like birding and plant identification walks. Come join us!

Follow along through our Facebook page.

10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Sundays, once a month.

On 4/28, Join us in Edgewater at the lake for stewardship and community science at Osterman Beach Dunes Natural Area! Dive into the biodiversity of nature as we embark on an iNaturalist bioblitz, documenting the rich biodiversity of our urban oasis for the 2024 City Nature Challenge. Come be a part of something bigger, where every observation counts towards understanding and preserving the ecological wonders of our city. Don't miss out on this chance to connect with nature and contribute to meaningful conservation efforts!

Join friends and neighbors to help clean up and restore the natural area at Kathy Osterman Beach Dunes (also known as Hollywood/Ardmore). Afterwards, stick around to enjoy the sun and a swim in the lake! Please bring your own water bottle and dress for the weather with closed-toe shoes (we have sand burs!)

- Meet at the south side of the beach house, just off Hollywood Ave.

- All ages and experience levels are welcome!

- No RSVP needed, RSVP for an easy link to add to your calendar.

There are accessible places off paved pathways to sit; and water, bike racks, and restrooms right by the meeting place. The activities take place in mostly flat and sandy areas that may be difficult to traverse for people with mobility challenges.  Parking in the area is very limited to what you can find on nearby streets. Biking, walking, carpooling, or public transit is recommended.  Contact volunteer Community Stewards Renee and Derek at ostermanbeachnaturalarea@gmail.com with questions.
