The Most-Popular Non-Nature Stories at Nature in Chicagoland in 2019

I wrote many stories about nature destinations in 2019, but I also covered a lot of other topics that were near and dear to my heart including stories about my family, the loss of a 100-year-old home in my neighborhood, the senseless murder of a sweet little boy, a first-time Amtrak trip across the country to our nation’s capital, and an apppreciation of the moon on the 50th anniverary of the moon landing (I guess that’s technically nature).
