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.

Event Details

Food trucks are back for a second season. Enjoy your favorite fare on wheels right in your community. This year, we’ve expanded our locations to cater to a hungry public.

The program kicks off in June. In addition to yummy and convenient food, enjoy the trails and activities, plus it’s hard to beat the view. Forest Preserve staff will be on-site with preserve information, activities and items for checkout: binoculars, field guides and bags to get you out exploring the preserve and exercising.

Once the truck lineup is finalized for this event, this listing will be updated.

Forest Preserve staff will be on site with preserve information and items for check out including binoculars and field guides.
