Description In 1994, Lake Forest Open Lands partnered with a local developer to save 50 acres of a 76-acre site in the Middlefork River Valley. This parcel had formerly been heavily farmed and grazed. Lake Forest Open Lands has restored several wetlands, prairies and a large oak savanna. In 1997 Lake Forest Open Lands partnered with the Friends of the Chicago River and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore over 2000 feet of riverbank frontage along the Middlefork River. Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Wood Ducks and many other colorful bird species frequent the wetlands, savanna and priaires within the preserve. Directions The entrance to Mellody Farm Nature Preserve is located at the south west corner of Deerpath and Waukegan Road (350 North Waukegan Road). Entrance is 200 yards south of the intersection at the Conservation Campus sign.
