Visitors at the 252-acre Meacham Grove Forest Preserve in Bloomingdale will find woodland groves, meadows, a fishing lake, wetlands and the meandering Spring Brook Creek. The extensive groves of stately oaks and maples are home to a host of spring wildflowers, including some endangered species. The wetlands support a variety of wildlife from great egrets to western chorus frogs.
In addition to its natural beauty and recreational opportunities, the forest preserve serves the community by collecting and filtering stormwater overflow. (from DuPage County Forest Preserve)
