Rx for Health


Working together for your good health!

We've teamed up with the Lake County Health Department and NorthShore University HealthSystem for Rx for Health, your field guide to forest preserve trails and your personal guide to good health. 

Walking in Nature

Each walk brings together naturalists and health professionals for guided tours of some of Lake County's most breathtaking scenery. You'll stroll through woodlands and prairies while improving your health and your knowledge of nature. Learn about countless species of native animals, and flora and fauna, while experiencing the forest at its most tranquil. Walks range in length from 1 to 2 miles.

Free, No Registration Required

Walks are free and open to all ages; 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. No registration required. Use the preserve's main entrance and follow signs to the walk. There are no rain dates, and walks will not be rescheduled if canceled. View schedule of upcoming walks »

With the exception of service animals, dogs and other pets are not permitted at the walk programs.
