Somme Woods has bur and white oak savannas and woodlands with massive old oaks, open marshes, and ephemeral ponds. Rich with native plants and animals, the savannas and woodlands are being restored to their original beauty. Great horned owls and red-tailed hawks nest and hunt here alongside coyotes, raccoons, and opossums.
Directions: Park in the Somme Woods lot on the north side of Dundee Road, just east of Waukegan Road. Map address is 1714 Dundee Road, Northbrook.
