Calendar of Upcoming Opportunities

Please note that our calendar does not show all opportunities, only those with fixed time schedules. Some organizations, such as the Forest Preserve District, permit flexible schedules and allow groups to customize itineraries to meet their needs. Others, such as the Active Transport Alliance, have seasonal activities and have not yet finalized the dates of their upcoming schedules. Such organizations may still be contacted for further information; see our profiles page.
