An important corridor for migratory birds, Forest Glen is part of the Lower North Branch Preserves. This unique woodland, savanna, and floodplain ecosystem gets help from the North Branch Restoration Project volunteer community as we remove invasive plants, collect and distribute native seeds, and reduce erosion issues.
