More than 50 years after first opening its doors, the Forest Preserves of Cook County’s Crabtree Nature Center has undergone a $2 million transformation that will enhance visitors’ experience and reduce the building’s carbon footprint.
Cook County Board and Forest Preserves of Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle said, “The Northwest region is a special part of Cook County. (We couldn’t agree more! 👍🏻😁).
“Crabtree Nature Center is home to more than a thousand acres of rolling, glacier-formed landscape. Thanks to this renovation and redesign, visitors today and for generations to come can explore new exhibits that focus on the unique landscape at Crabtree and experience a sense of what the land looked and felt like prior to European colonization and development.”
