Wayside Woods & Prairie

May 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Free

The village of Morton Grove has a constellation of sites. One of the fine prairie restorations along the North Branch is Wayside Woods Prairie. A former baseball diamond is now covered with prairie flowers joining two small, high quality prairie remnants.  Many of the classic prairie plants are found here, including grasses such as big bluestem, switch grass and northern dropseed; stiff and Riddell’s goldenrods; tall coreopsis, prairie dock, compass plant and many others.

Directions: Meet at Wayside Woods Prairie Forest Preserve parking lot on the west side of Lehigh Ave., a few blocks east of Waukegan Road and just north of Dempster.
