On Saturday, September 28 we’ll be at the 3rd Annual Beer in the Woods and we hope you’ll be there too! Please join us at LaBagh Woods, a haven for nature enthusiasts and birders, right here in the heart of Chicago. Beer in the Woods is a beer tasting and nature-themed festival to support Friends of the Forest
Preserves, featuring interactive live animal presentations, crafts, picnic games, a flash bioblitz, an "Ultimate Camp Site" display, bird walks, home brewing demonstrations, food trucks, and a DJ!

All proceeds will be used to fund Friends’ advocacy work, Conservation Corps programming, and community-building initiatives.
