North Shore Channel Habitat Walk

This walk will introduce you to the natural and human history of the North Shore Channel as it runs through the Ladd Arboretum and Twiggs Park. Even if you’ve walked here before, we hope you will learn more about the area and the habitat restoration work now underway. Starting from the Evanston Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd, cross east over the bridge toward Twiggs Park. Locations on the map are approximate.
