Event details

Looking for a way to connect with fellow Goosechasers? Join us for this meetup to get to know other Take It Outside challenge participants and maybe even complete some missions together. Stop by the shelter to let us know what you’re enjoying about the challenge and meet other Goosechasers then set out on an adventure of your own.

This is not an interpretive hike. Forest Preserve staff will be on hand to answer questions and troubleshoot for challenge participants. Those who attend are welcome to hit the trails with others to complete missions and make plans to meet up for future Take It Outside outings.

Event requirements

No registration required. 

We will meet up rain or shine; if the meetup must be canceled due to severe weather, a message will be sent to participants via the Goosechase app. 

Meet at the Plum Creek shelter near the nature center. The parking lot and shelter area are accessible. Preserve trails are on paved surfaces over uneven terrain. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
