Create lasting impacts into the region by creating real roots and connections to the land
Out Our Front Door is excited to work with Major Taylor Cycling Club of Chicago for our first Where the Wild Things Grow ride of 2022! Join us for a day ride from Palmisano Park (2700 S Halsted) to the Major Taylor Bike Trail (9400 S Ashland) where we will complete a three-hour trail stewardship day working to beautify several sections of the bike path.
We will meet at the SW corner of 27th and Halsted entrance to Palmisano Park. We are heading out on bikes at 8:00am SHARP to complete a 8 mile ride to The Major Taylor. The workday lasts from 9am to 12 pm.
If you would still like to volunteer but are unable to meet us in Bridgeport, feel free to meet us at the work site in the Jewel Osco parking lot, 9400 S Ashland Ave.
Afterward, we have an optional hangout to get lunch and a drink.
What to bring: Your bike in good working order, a spare tube, a bike lock, water, a snack, and gardening gloves if you have them. There will be some work gloves available at the site. There will be mud so be sure to wear clothes you don't mind generally getting dirty. Long pants and close-toed shoes are recommended.

Native Corridors Leading into Openlands
Our aim is to assist & create native corridors that represent that natural heritage of the landscape for which our trails belong to. We help to build a network of natural pathways for animals, insects, plants, and bicyclists which lead to nature preserves and native openlands.
