“An outdoor learning experience”

The Lake County Forest Preserves was created by referendum in 1958 and continues to serve as Lake County's principal guardian of open space and natural areas. We work with many government, nonprofit and community partners, such as conservation organizations, natural resources agencies, county governments and museum associations. Our roots reach back to 1957 and a three-year-old boy who wanted to go exploring in the woods. When Ethel Untermyer's son, Frank, made his request, she asked a friend where the nearest forest preserve was. Like many families, the Untermyers had just moved to Lake County from nearby Chicago and were unfamiliar with the area.

My whole family had a great experience to remember from the Lake Country Forest Preserves.

Except from the natural surroundings we saw while passing through the trails we went horse riding, ate our lunch at the picnic areas provided (there are tables and restrooms which are very clean) and the boys loved the show of airplane models flying.

Fantastic experience and great for family escapes!
