The lands stretching south and west from the shores of Lake Michigan hold
one of North America's great metropolises. Nearly eight million people live
in northwestern Indiana, northeastern Illinois, and southeastern Wisconsin.
Living among them, on islands of green, are thousands of native species of
plants and animals, species that make up some of the rarest natural
communities on earth. We call these communities and the lands and waters
that are their homes Chicago Wilderness.
Chicago Wilderness, An Atlas of Biodiversity, is a publication of the
Chicago Region Biodiversity Council.
