Cook County Forest Preserve District Board Meeting
October 22, 2019
The Forest Preserve Board meeting spent 40 minutes of the hour on the consent agenda thanking various employees for their time served.
The IL Nature Preserve Commission thanked the Forest Preserve District (FPD) for preserving species and habitat in many spots throughout Cook County. Harms Woods is just the most recent designation in the FPD as a nature preserve.
Superintendent Randall reported that attendance is up, that fall is a lovely time to visit the forest preserve because there are fall colors and no insects. Permits go on sale November 15 and on-line use should make it especially easy.
He thanked an employee for almost single-handedly updating the website, particularly with regard to mobile-friendly access. He mentioned Ryan Lothian by name and said that otherwise it would have cost the FPD more than $100k to update and improve the website. Check out the updated website.
