Dwight Perkins Woods is the only Forest Preserve in Evanston. It is named for the originator of the Forest Preserve District, Dwight Perkins. It is a small 7.5 acre native woodland adjacent to Lincolnwood School. It is a popular birding spot and is distinctive for the beauty of its spring wildflowers. Invasive species removal of buckthorn, honeysuckle and garlic mustard, and cleanup, are our major workday activities.
