Nature's Night Out

The Event

The 2020 Nature's Night Out event has been cancelled due to the challenges created by the coronavirus situation. 

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 at the Levy Center as the Evanston Green Ball for many years, but then was re-invented in 2018 and renamed Nature's Night out. And with the new name came a new event venue - the Evanston Ecology Center.

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, music, dancing and conversation with your friends and neighbors at this year's Nature's Night Out. And give yourself a chance to win some really cool prizes while supporting the Ecology Center.  

This year's theme is being finalized and will be published on this web page soon.

  • Date/Time: Saturday, May 16th, 2020, from 7pm to 10:30pm
  • Location: Evanston Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd, Evanston, IL 60201
