The Evergreen Cemetery Walk is a great educational program for students to participate in. Your students will develop an understanding and appreciation for cemeteries as a source for history. They will begin to understand our local history and its importance, and understand the natural connection between history and the arts.
In addition, the Cemetery Walk will help teachers meet a variety of History and English related ISBE Learning Goals and Common Core Standards.
Registration to attend the in-person tours of the 2023 School Tours of the Evergreen Cemetery Walk are full.
The 2023 Virtual Evergreen Cemetery Walk will be viewable starting November 3, 2023. To register your students to participate in the Virtual Walk, click here.
