The McCormick Place Bird Sanctuary is one of the Chicago Park District’s four bird lakefront sanctuaries. The 6-acre sanctuary contains prairie, shrub and woodland habitat, and a freshwater stone birdbath. The prairie at the north end of the sanctuary sits on top of an underground parking garage that services the McCormick Place Conference Center. The wildflowers and grasses selected for the roof can adapt to the shallow soil of this rooftop prairie. A platform with interpretive signage on the east side provides viewing and birding opportunities into the habitat.
