Plants Found in the Chicagoland Area
Created by


Website 52 participants 243 spottings

During the 19th century, Chicago was one of the most rapid growing cities. It went from a village of only 20,000 inhabitants in 1848, to a metropolis of 1,000,000 city dwellers at the turn of the century. The people inhabiting the Chicagoland area forever changed the landscape to suit their needs. Let us come together to find what plants have been in this region forever, and what have been introduced over the years.
