Big Marsh is Almost Ready

October 07, 2016

Now, with the Park about to open, is the most important time for you to contribute to Friends of Big Marsh. We still have $30,000 to go before the end of 2016 to earn a $1 million matching grant toward the park construction costs, and we also need to raise operating funds for Friends of Big Marsh. Friends will help coordinate activities that enhance both the ecological and recreational enjoyment of Big Marsh - hikes, service days, birding groups, rides, events, parties and outreach. Friends of Big Marsh and Chicago Park District create the public-private partnership that truly elevates this special community resource.

  • Big Marsh Tshirt

Please consider making a member contribution of any amount to celebrate the impending opening of the Park. Every contribution of $60 or more will receive a limited edition Big Marsh 2016 Member T-Shirt, and you will be a participant in furthering the mission of the Park and of Friends.

Please contribute at today!

Thank you,
