The West Chicago Prairie serves up nature at its best. As one of northern Illinois' premier natural areas, the 358-acre site contains over 600 plant and wildlife species and is home to the 126-acre Truitt-Hoff Nature Preserve, one of eight state-designated nature preserves.
Many of the nine walking/hiking trails that meander through the site connect to the Illinois Prairie Path, which extends past preserve boundaries into Reed-Keppler Park.
