Activities celebrate Forest Preserve centennial

The Forest Preserves of Cook County will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a week-long centennial celebration Sept. 20 – 27. Area residents are invited to venture into the wilderness throughout Cook County, where activities are planned for all ages and interests, including canoeing. kayaking, archery, nature hikes, bird watching and bike riding. The week’s events will culminate in a grand finale — the county’s largest tree-hug, where participants will be joining hands to hug one of the trees in Caldwell Woods near 6100 W. Devon Ave. in Chicago. For more detailed information and to find a nearby event, visit
