Restoration Work at Severson Dells Forest Preserve

Beginning in mid-February, the Forest Preserve Natural Resource staff will be clearing vegetation inside of the Severson Dells Forest Preserve as part of a habitat restoration effort. Initially, unwanted and invasive trees and brush will be removed from the understory during the winter months. Locations of the work will be the old home site between the entrance drive and Montague Road, and near the Education Center building between the hard path and the cul-de-sac roadway.  This is being done in order to promote the native tree and plant populations that are present. Additional native plantings may be added in the future as needed.
