Ever find yourself up a creek without a paddle? In a field without a compass? Down a path without a map? No worries, kind visitor—MANIFESTO has put together the all new Winnebago County Forest Preserve District’s “Visitor’s Guide & Map”. Showing how to get around the area’s 9,700 acres nestled within 41 preserves, the Guide is part of the ongoing rebranding initiative. Winnebago County Forest Preserve District invites everybody to discover the benefits of recreation with their sites, facilities, and programs. Hiking, canoeing, golfing, fishing, camping, boating, bird watching, picnicking, and equestrian activities are just a handful of options available.
As stewards of Winnebago County’s natural heritage, WCFPD is committed to ensuring that open spaces and natural communities are actively protected, restored, and managed to ecological health. WCFPD manages over 9,700 acres of accessible, interconnected, restored and healthy ecosystems.
