Garlic Mustard Mondays at Eggers Grove Forest Preserve
Eggers Grove Forest Preserve is one of the last marsh, wet-prairie, and dune complexes in the Calumet Region. The 205-acre preserve, owned by the Forest Preserves of Cook County, contains more than 45 acres of rich wetlands - a small remnant of the approximately 25,000 acres of wetland that once dominated the Calumet Region. Along with wetlands, Eggers Grove is comprised of oak woodlands and savannas, making it one of the region’s most important natural areas.
