Cook County Forest Preserve asking for help with master plan

As part of its research for a Trail Master Plan, the Cook County Forest Preserve District is asking people to take survey about its trails.

Please take five minutes to share your thoughts about the county's trails and how to make improvements, create better connections and provide amenities.


The survey will be open the month of June. We encourage you to pass it along to your trail friends and neighbors. 

As part of its master plan development process, the agency is looking for volunteers to help count and interview trail users June 20-24 on two of  its major systems, the Des Plaines River Trail and the Tinley Creek Trail.

Sign up for a 4 hour shift (7-11 a.m.; 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; 3-7 p.m.) on June 20 and June 22 on the Des Plaines River Trail and on June 21 and June 23 on the Tinley Creek Trail.

Interested? Contact Kindy Kruller at or 708-771-1009.
