About Prairie Wolf Forest Preserve

In the early 1990s, a number of community groups joined us to formulate a plan to restore rare and valuable wetlands at the slough. With the help of hundreds of volunteers ranging from school children to seniors, Lake County Forest Preserves have restored an old agricultural field to habitat for native species. Hundreds of volunteers have planted more than 61,000 plants to provide habitat for birds, frogs, turtles and other animals.
