Illinois: Lakewood Forest Preserve
Posted on Thursday, June 08 @ 08:14:57 MST by iljiana

Horse Rentals & Day Ride Trails vlado writes "The Preserve's main entrance and parking areas are located on Route 176 just west of Fairfield Road and east of Route 12.
Wauconda, IL
Lake County

This nearly 2,600-acre Forest Preserve is Lake County's largest. Together, Lakewood and adjoining 403-acre Ray Lake Forest Preserve, create a 3,000-acre greenway in western Lake County.

Home of the Lake County Forest Preserves' award-winning Lake County Discovery Museum, Lakewood boasts many other recreational amenities as well, including a winter sports area with an ice skating pond, sled hill and trails for cross-country skiing.

While Lakewood is one of the region's most popular Preserves, it also supports pristine natural areas and habitat for endangered species. Lakewood is home to 17 endangered species, many of which reside in a remote 70-acre bog on the preserve's western side. This bog, ringed by poison sumac and a natural moat, is so ecologically valuable it is listed on the national register of Natural Landmarks and has been dedicated as an Illinois Nature Preserve. Another area of note is Broberg Marsh, one of the best breeding spots in the county for birds.

This landscape is a mixture of oak woods, wetlands and fields. You'll also find farmlands and groves of evergreens. A lot of wildlife lives here and if you're lucky, you may even spot one of the bats from the colony living near picnic shelter E. These shy mammals sleep while picnickers have their fun, and then awake at dusk to eat thousands of mosquitoes and other bugs. For more information:(847) 367-6640"
