Village of Skokie  Skokie: a vibrant community adding the urban to suburban! Great dining, shops, schools/neighbors, diversity and more! Tag your photos! #WeLoveSkokie

Before and after. @johnmaloof and @computer_ego prepped this wall so that it will be ready for Austin-based artist Tim Kerr (@movetk ) to give it some mural love next week before his one man show opens at @miishkooki on Saturday, August 26. This wall is on the east side of Skokie Boulevard just north of Oakton Street by the old Puppy Lovers site. #arteverywhere #skokie #weloveskokie

New video about @peru143's "Skokie" mural and his work in general. He's such a talented artist and an all around great guy! Full video link in bio. 🎥: @simon_gkc

The Skokie Park District's Emily Oaks Nature Center has many great employees that help keep it a beautiful oasis in Skokie. One of which is Stephen Doyle. He has worked at Emily Oaks for nearly four years. His proudest moments there are planting new native trees and shrubs, tending to and transplanting the greenhouse plants (These native wildflowers and grasses are propagated by the Land Management staff and volunteers from local seed at Emily Oaks.) and the not-so-rare wildlife sightings.
He recalled a time along the back trail, as he passed by what he thought was a big rock. To his surprise, it moved and then realized it was a large snapping turtle the size of a small dog! He’s also spotted small owls, hawks and all kinds of deer.
Stephen has been a Skokie resident for more than 20 years and attended summer camp at Emily Oaks as a kid. Other things that interest Stephen are martial arts, reading, meditation and his dog.
Skokie is happy that Stephen is deepened his childhood roots into a career in at the Skokie Park District! Thank you Stephen!
