President's Letter: New Year’s Wishes

I’d like to wish a Happy New Year to all of the visitors and supporters of the Forest Preserves of Cook County!

In the coming year, I hope you’ll turn to the Forest Preserves even more as a source for recreation, education and rejuvenation. Whether you only see the preserves on occasion or visit them every day, it can be easy to take these treasures for granted. Challenge yourself to stay in touch with the beauty of these natural places in some tangible way.

Thank you for all your support over the past year–your ideas and input, your passion and hard work. It has helped make the Forest Preserves of Cook County the best they can be. Here’s to another incredible year.

Toni Preckwinkle, President
Forest Preserves of Cook County
