McDonald Woods: The woods have gone dormant. However, take a walk along the many paths, enjoy the winter solitude and look for winter birds. Come back to the woods in early spring and find the spring ephemerals.

Prairie and Skokie River: Prairie plants are now in their winter dormancy. Enjoy the quiet solitude of the prairie and watch winds blow seeds to new growing areas and sway the tall grasses and forbs with their golden, white and black seed heads. There is always color on the prairie.
