Hike Lake County Forest Preserves
Like to Hike?
Enjoy fall breezes and autumn colors while exploring designated Hike Lake County trails. At each preserve, look for the Hike Lake County logo at the trailhead to get you started on the right route.  
How It Works
Complete just seven of the hikes between August 15 and November 30, and you'll earn a commemorative shield for your walking stick or a zipper pull (while supplies last). Use the  Travel Log  to record each hike. Every hiker needs their own. Bicycling or horseback riding do not count toward the program.
Let your canine companion join in the fun and complete the hikes with you. Record their name on your  Travel Log  and your dog will receive a commemorative dog tag (up to three dogs). You can even purchase an optional Hike Lake County dog collar to hang it on.
To receive your free dog tag, zipper pull or commemorative shield for your walking stick (while supplies last), submit your Travel Log  online , bring it to any Hike Lake County Center, or mail it with a self-addressed stamped envelope to Lake County Forest Preserves, 1899 West Winchester Road, Libertyville, IL 60048 by January 31, 2020.

The Veteran's History Project
The Veteran's History Project’s mission is to collect, preserve, and make accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. This is, essentially an oral history.

Each year Lake County VHP records approximately 35 veterans narratives of their experience in the military. It is a fun day, beginning with an excellent breakfast (hosted by Marine Corps League Detachment 1395) followed by 1-on-1 interviews conducted by County lawyers and recorded work for word by court reporters.

To register, or for more information, go to Lake County VHP .
