Willowbrook Forest Preserve has woodlands that are interspersed with prairie and wetlands, and bisected by Glen Crest Creek. The preserve serves as a resource for understanding the natural world and provides learning experiences at the Willowbrook Wildlife Center. The Center educates DuPage County residents to live in harmony with diverse, healthy wildlife populations. In addition to being an education center, Willowbrook is also a wildlife rehabilitation facility.
ALERT: Construction will begin Oct. 16, 2013 and as a result the existing parking lot will be closed until the middle of January 2014. Alternate parking is available across Park Boulevard at St. James the Apostle Catholic Church.
We will meet in the parking lot of the church and start our short hike at 10am.
Length of Hike is only 1 mile and it is an easy hike.
We will also visit the Willowbrook Wildlife Rehabilitation Center after our short hike.
This hike due to length and location would be great for kids.
