Our Where the Wild Things Grow Program, during our 2023 fiscal year, ran 4 rides to do environmental service, and all of them sold out with 17-20 folks registered, so with guides, we had over 80 folks sign-up to participate in the program over the past year. We did an awesome ride
from Arc’teryx Bucktown to La Bagh Woods in January, our 7th annual ride to the Major Taylor Trail to help the Friends of the Major Taylor Trail for their Earth Day event. We kept the tradition alive with Patagonia Mag Mile for the third year in a row by leading a group from their shop to help with some restoration at the Bill Jarvis Migratory Bird Sanctuary.
And we wrapped up with a big ride from Cog Cycles and Yarn up to Emily Oaks Nature Center in Skokie. Our new fiscal year just started this month and the program started strong with a great group riding out from Bikes N’ Roses to Bob Mann Woods to do habitat restoration in partnership with the Shedd Aquarium this past weekend. Major props to Maura Benson for completely organizing that ride, her first as the Assistant Program Director. And as always, major gratitude to Matt Weiss as the Program Director for the Where the Wild Thing Grow Program.
