Nature's Night Out

The Event

Nature's Night Out is a fundraiser organized by the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) and the City of Evanston with proceeds going to the programming and operations of the Evanston Ecology Center.

This event was presented as the Evanston Green Ball for many years, but then was re-invented in 2018 and renamed Nature's Night out. And last year's attendees loved the updated event!

Nature's Night Out is an opportunity for residents of Evanston and nearby communities who are passionate about the environment to get together in a social setting. Don't miss out on a night of fun, food, dancing and conversation with your friends and neighbors at this year's Nature's Night Out. 

This year's theme for the event is Into the Woods!
