Free Public Interpretative Tours of the Chicago Portage
August 5, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Chicago Portage was an ancient portage that connected the Great Lakes waterway system with the Mississippi River system. Connecting these two great water trails meant comparatively easy access from the mouth of the St Lawrence River on the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains, and the Gulf of Mexico. Join the Friends of the Chicago Portage as they give you a free interpretative tour of the Chicago Portage area.
Enter at 4800 S. Harlem, Forest View, IL. Meet at the statue.
