A Day at Northerly Island – A Hiking Tour

GSC and IGS invite you to meet us at Chicago’s Northerly Island for a days hike on Wednesday, June 5. 
This hiking tour will explore Northerly Island (completed in 1925) and environs.  Northerly Island was part of the site for the 1933 Century of Progress and until most recently housed Meigs Field designed to accommodate corporate and private aircraft.  The tour is self-pay for all meals, gas, and any parking fees EXCEPT for the Soldier Field Tour which is pre-pay.  We recommend that you bring a picnic lunch and water and/or a beverage for this event.
