The mission of Chicago Wilderness in alliance with member organizations that champion biodiversity and its contribution to the quality of life in the urban, suburban, and rural areas of the Chicago Metropolitan region is to:

  • Raise awareness and knowledge about the biodiversity and value of nature in our region, our neighborhoods, our workplaces, our schools, and our homes through formal and informal education.
  • Increase and diversify public participation and environmental stewardship.
  • Build alliances among the diverse constituencies throughout the Chicago region to foster a sustainable relationship with nature.
  • Facilitate applied natural and social science research, best practices development, and information sharing.
  • Generate broad-based public and private support and attract resources to achieve our goals.
