Wayside Prairie

The Wayside Woods Forest Preserve consist of a large fine field of unique prairie plants surrounded on all sides by a fringe of woods. The entrance off of Lehigh Avenue leads to a grassy picnic area with a shelter. Across the road from the entrance are the railroad tracks of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul line and along which is a narrow fringe of valuable prairie plants monitored by the stewards of Wayside.
