Willoughby Farms Forest Preserve
West Dundee, IL
Formerly known as the Randall Road Marsh, this 28-acre preserve features wetlands and prairie adjacent to open space owned and managed by the Dundee Township Park District. Native plants have been re-introduced to the area since its purchase in 2007. The summer prairie boasts wildflowers such as gray-headed coneflower, cup plant, and wild bergamot. In the wetland, unique birds such as pied-billed grebes and yellow-headed blackbirds have been seen.
