Many people ask what they can do to help influence the management of the Fort Sheridan Forest Preserve. In fact, hundreds of people from throughout the region have expressed their strong concern. You can add your voice and, yes, it can help.
In the end, the Lake County Forest Preserve is yours. Yes, we have elected people to be custodians of this land. But we have not transferred our ownership, we have extended our trust in their ability to serve our objectives. These people are accountable to you.
