Wolf Lake straddles the Illinois and Indiana State line between 120th and 134th streets in Chicago. The park road on the east side runs parallel to the Indiana line. Wolf Lake also lies in the heart of the Calumet region, a natural area of over 15,000 acres of river systems, parks, trails, rare dune and swale, and savanna. Openlands has focused on empowering community groups and local governments to care for the region’s natural resources.
Be sure to stop by the new visitor center at William W. Powers SRA. The visitor center includes displays on the Calumet region’s natural resources and cultural history, and is the focal point for special events and education programs at the site.
