Explore the Millennium Reserve and Greater Calumet Region: A Natural and Cultural Guide to the Region from Bronzeville to the Indiana Dunes” is a full-color guidebook to the greater Calumet region complete with maps, photos and plenty of history.

Nature lovers can use it to discover all of the best places for hiking, biking, birding, boating and fishing in this diverse, bi-state region. There’s also plenty of culture to explore—from breweries to museums, the Guide offers a fascinating glimpse into the region’s cultural hotspots.

The Guide was created with funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Coastal Management Program. Thanks to this funding, and additional support from ComEd and Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Guide is available in both printed and electronic PDF forms.

With maps, photos and detailed descriptions of regional highlights, this Guide was researched, written and designed to encourage residents and visitors to this region to get out there and explore—to see, smell and touch the fantastic world around them.
