Photographer Mike MacDonald is on a mission to connect people to the fantastic nature all around us. There are 350 square miles of natural areas within an hour drive of Chicago. It’s the equivalent of 29 national parks put together. MacDonald’s website ChicagoNatureNOW! aims to get people out to new places in nature.
