Help Us Plan For the Future

Master Plan Survey

For over 100 years, the Forest Preserve District has been striving to protect and improve the county’s prairies, forests and wetlands while providing great ways for people to experience, enjoy and learn more about these incredible areas. To date, we manage nearly 26,000 acres across 60 different forest preserves. We may not offer ballfields or playgrounds, but we do offer some of the most beautiful open spaces in northern Illinois with some of the best ways to relax and soak up the scenery. We’re currently working on a plan to guide our efforts over the next five years, and we want to hear from you!
