As a college student, trips home are always the best. I get to see my family again, relax, and I’m back in the 815.

Neither of us had been there despite being lifelong citizens of the Rockford area, and let me tell you, we have been missing out.

The forest preserves are filled with fascinating sights, sounds and scents as spring emerges. Woodland wildflowers are beginning to bloom, hundreds of bird species are migrating through and nesting, frogs are calling, streams are babbling and insects return. What can you discover in your 43 Forest Preserves of Winnebago County?
