Waukegan Savanna is 774 acres of gently rolling terrain with a mix of agriculture fields, oak woodlands with spring woodland flowers, open fields with native prairie plants, and a meandering stream bordered by wetlands and woodlands. This variance in habitat supports a variety of birds including goldfinches, black-capped chickadees, ruby-crowned kinglet and red-tailed hawk.
The preserve is home to our Dog Sled Area. A gravel parking lot, located off Yorkhouse Road just west of Delany Road, provides access to grass hiking trails and the Dog Sled Area. When using the Dog Sled Area for hiking, please keep dogs leashed and on the grass trails at all times, and pick up after them.
