With expansive prairie views, Orland Grassland is a wild destination for nature lovers. Hike past bouquets of wildflowers to the top of the many rolling hills for sweeping views. Enjoy the sights of butterflies, dragonflies and multitudes of grasshoppers jumping around your feet. Watch deer trot along the horizon as the shadows of clouds drift across the prairie. Walk the trails and spot rare birds that make their habitat in the grassland. Bring binoculars if you have them!

*For this program students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location. They will be going to Orland Grassland, located at 167th and S. LaGrange Road in Tinley Park. Must have ‘Permission to Transport’ indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).
