Cook County’s forest preserves are home to nearly 70,000 acres of wild and wonderful woodlands, wetlands and prairies. About 20 percent of Morton Grove’s land is composed of forest preserve. These public areas offer residents a chance to get out and enjoy nature from biking, hiking, exploring the any varieties of native plants, bird watching and more. Those wishing to hold outdoor events can reserve groves with through the forest preserves for their events. Morton Grove is very fortunate to have this treasure of nature in our community.
