Blue Star Woods

Blue Star Memorial Woods

At the center of the site is a nice oak woodland community; the northeast corner has wet oak woods with many sedges still present. Much of this site was heavily used first as a Prisoner of War Camp and then later as a CCC Camp. Many bunkers are still present throughout the site, along with planted trees such as Catalpa and Scotch Pine.

Directions

Enter the Forest Preserve driveway into the site from Lake Ave, west of Harms Road and just east of the bike path overpass.
