WELCOME TO BACKYARD NATURE CENTER’S SITE RESOURCE PACKETS!


BYNC has selected and described five nature sites in New Trier Township that represent the diversity of the Township’s open spaces. It is our hope that these Resource Packets serve as your roadmap to discovery as you explore and enjoy the various parks, managed natural lands, and forest preserves. BYNC’s mission is to connect children and adults, individuals and groups, with the joys and wonders of nature. We believe this connection benefits both the natural world and the lives of the participants.

Each Site Resource Packet offers:

  • Road map to the site
  • Site map with highlighted areas of interest
  • Physical features, e.g., picnic pavilions, restrooms, playgrounds, nature trails, boat access, swimming beaches, school bus parking, restored prairie areas
  • Ecological and biological features, e.g., tree and flower diversity, shoreline, bird species
  • Potential activities
