Wild Mile Block Party

The Urban Rivers team, their staff, volunteers, and supporters will be celebrating the first section of the Wild Mile which was installed during the fall of 2021. The Wild Mile is a wildlife-first, mile-long river park located in the North Branch Channel of the Chicago River. The Wild Mile will be the next great innovative public space in Chicago and will not only bring Chicagoans to the river but will inspire and engage people in ways that are currently not possible. What makes the Wild Mile so unique, is it will be built with all floating elements, bringing people right to the river-level where they can take in all of the local plants and wildlife. The Wild Mile consists of floating gardens & trees, habitat installations, access points, walkways and educational initiatives with the aim of creating a robust wildlife sanctuary. Come join the Urban Rivers team and all of their supporters at 3:30 PM to eat, dance and mingle with all of those who love projects like the Wild Mile. There will be kayak rides, raffles, a habitat scavenger hunt, food vendors, live graffiti and music. Making it fun for everyone!
