Program & Event Facilitator – Burnham Wildlife Corridor
This position will support the work of the Outdoor and Environmental Education Unit in the Chicago Park District’s Department of Cultural and Natural Resources. It is responsible for administrative and program support for the Burnham Wildlife Corridor, a 100-acre ribbon of urban wilderness running through Burnham Park. It is home to five unique “gathering spaces,” which have been designed, created, and activated by teams of local artists and community-based organizations from the Chinatown, Bronzeville, and Pilsen neighborhoods. The BWC Gathering Spaces are artistic installations and seating areas, reflective of nature and culture that serve as assembly grounds and resting points for people exploring this part of the lakefront. They are located on both the east and west sides of Lake Shore Drive.
