Deciduous conifers




Quiet paths
in the woods


Frosty leaves

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

Prairie and Skokie River: Summer flowers have faded to fall seeds as prairie plants begin their winter dormancy. Enjoy the fluffy white and solid black seed heads, the yellowing leaves and the sun shining on grasses. There is always color on the prairie.
