Julie's Favorite Memory
"I spent a year as an AmeriCorps member at Severson Dells Nature Center and we often hiked the trails. I loved watching the seasons change and noticing more details in nature than I ever had before. Walking even just the paved loop trail there is total uniqueness in each season. I treasure those walks and hope everyone gets the chance to experience a Forest Preserve in all four seasons."

Matt's Favorite Memory
"My wife and I got married in Seward Bluffs. It was a perfect summer day. It rained the weekend before and after but there was clear skies on our wedding day. "
