Wolf Road Prairie

This black soil prairie with oak woods and marsh still has the sidewalks poured by an early 20th century developer.

On spring evenings, American Woodcocks are easily seen performing their mating displays. Numerous songbirds use the area during migration, and breeding birds have included Eastern Bluebird and Yellow-breasted Chat.

This site is owned by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
