The volunteers of the Bill Jarvis Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Chicago’s Lincoln Park are dedicated to maintaining, improving and creating a nature area on Chicago’s lakefront. We hope to enhance this Sanctuary so that it can be home to many native species of plants and animals that would otherwise be missing from this urban environment. We also want to provide essential habitat for migrating birds to rest and feed in during their journeys. We look to diverse natural areas for our inspiration, and try to bring some of that diversity to this microcosm of nature in Chicago.
