Lecture - The Brilliance of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County

The Brilliance of the Forest Preserve District of Cook County: Celebrating 100 Years

Visionaries including Jens Jensen and Dwight Perkins set up the Forest Preserve District of Cook County in 1913, knowing that the expansion of the city would envelope open spaces, prairies and woodlands. The fight for the Forest Preserve District succeeded in giving us a legacy of 68,000 acres of forests for public use and enjoyment.
