The Forest Preserve District last completed a master plan in 1992. Since then it has installed more than 70 miles of new trails, protected 2,600 acres of high-quality habitat with state nature preserve or land and water reserve status, and constructed the Urban Stream Research Center, Timber Ridge Visitor Center, Maple Meadows clubhouse, Danada House annex and other key buildings.

“These preserves are yours and should reflect the type of nature programs and recreational activities you’re interested in,” said Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore. “This is your chance to share your vision with us.”

The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County has been connecting people to nature for more than 100 years. More than 4 million people visit its 62 forest preserves, 145 miles of trails, five education centers and scores of programs each year.
