About Meacham Grove Nature Preserve
On the east side of Meacham Grove, the lake and adjacent wetlands are excellent places to hear western chorus frogs or see great egrets, great blue herons, swallows, and other native wildlife, including beavers and dragonflies.
On the west side of Bloomingdale-Roselle Road, native plants, some endangered, grow in an upland forest etched with intermittent streams. In 2012 the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission gave this area an extra level of protection by designating it as the Meacham Grove Nature Preserve.
