Illinois and Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor

8/24/1998 Chicago Portage National Historic Site Went a ways to the Little Red Schoolhouse nature center [Willow Springs], which is in the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, along with the Chicago Portage. Saw the animals in the old school, and took a short nature walk.

8/29/2010 Chicago Portage National Historic Site We also walked a little way on the trails that were part of the Illinois and Michigan Canal NHC. The canals finally replaced the portage trail through the mud lakes that were on the mini-divide between east and west.
