The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

This preserve reopened on Sunday, February 18 after being closed a day earlier due to a train blocking the tracks on the road leading to the preserve's only access point.
A curious opossum that got its head stuck in a post opening at the Hammel Woods Dog Park was rescued Valentine's Day by Forest Preserve police Officer Mike Reilly.
The preserves offer year-round recreational opportunities to engage a variety of interests.
