NEW!

One of Lake County’s newest forest preserves.

Considered a birdwatcher’s paradise, more than 116 species of birds have been observed here, including a resident population of waterfowl and herons–the site’s namesake. Six state endangered bird species, black tern, black-crowned night heron, yellow-crowned night heron, osprey, Forster’s tern, and three state threatened bird species, brown creeper, pied-billed grebe and red-shouldered hawk have been found in the area.

Directions:

Entrance is at 22890 N Old McHenry Road, Lake Zurich, approximately 1/2 mile south of Route 22.
