Illinois is a midwestern state bordering the Mississippi River in the west and Lake Michigan to the east. Nicknamed "the Prairie State," it's marked by farmland, forests, rolling hills and wetlands. Chicago, one of the largest cities in the U.S, is in the northeast on the shores of Lake Michigan south of Wisconsin. On this week-long outdoor education program, students will travel the path of ‘Farm to Fork’ from a rural farm in Northern Illinois to bustling Chicago eateries. The week is full of hands-on experiential education activities all while taking in the sights and sounds of the American Midwest.
