Watch ChicagoNatureNOW! on WTTW’s Jay’s Chicago

“Jay Shefsky celebrates the mission of ChicagoNatureNOW! starting Thursday, March 24th”

At O'Hara Woods in Romeoville, Illinois, the April sun rises to warm the springtime woodland brimming with Virginia bluebells.

Jay Shefsky, host of WTTW’s Jay’s Chicago, features ChicagoNatureNOW! by interviewing Mike in the field during the peak bloom of Virginia bluebells at O’Hara Woods Nature Preserve in Romeoville.

On Thursday, March 24 at 8:30 pm, WTTW (Ch. 11) will begin its new season of Jay’s Chicago with the theme of “Out in Nature.” And ChicagoNatureNOW! will be one of the featured stories. If you’re a member of WTTW, you can stream it right now! If not, the episode will air at various times during the following days, as well, giving you plenty of opportunities to tune in. See schedule below. And you can also view the episode online, but at a much lower video quality, here:

The show’s affable host, Jay Shefsky, interviewed me in May of 2019 at O’Hara Woods in Romeoville during peak bluebell bloom. The piece is beautifully produced and perfectly conveys our mission. It’s uplifting and delightful, and I think you’ll love it!

Episode: Out In Nature

Jay is out in nature – tagging along with a record-breaking teen birder, helping with a controlled fire that rejuvenates a forest, and learning where to see the area’s best wildflowers. He also makes friends with an unnervingly large insect.
