Connect With Nature

Here at Keeler Gardens, a 501(c)(3), we are spreading the word, the word being biophilia. Are you familiar with the term biophilia? Biophilia has been defined as the love of life and all living things, that drives our innate desire to connect with the natural world. We believe that love, of all living things around us, plants from the ground to towering trees, and wildlife from crickets to the birds in the sky, offers something so special and important. This very important connection can only be made with a sustained and repeated exposure to nature.  So we are starting with our Old Irving Park community, embracing the natural world and strengthening that connection as our community grows. Keeler Gardens is a resource on how we can bring nature into our daily lives and how simple acts can improve our health and well-being. How will you connect with nature today?

Here at Keeler Gardens we educate on biophilia , and the inclusion of the natural world into any space and every lifestyle, for the betterment of our overall health and well-being. Through our educational programs you can learn about biophilia, unique and wonderful ways to include nature in your life, and the many ways we benefit from this important connection with nature. We show you how to take advantage of all that nature has to offer.

We are all part of the same community so tell us about yourselves.  We would love to feature you on our blog page Bio-Philes, and you can find a lot of great information there, too. And for the stunning views you'll find pictures from Keeler Gardens throughout this site. You'll find images taken by some of our photographers, of other gardens, and you'll find a lot of beautiful images of flora, fauna, and “wildlife” to inspire you.
