Warrenville Grove

Warrenville Grove’s rolling topography consists of floodplain and upland woodlands, natural fens, and a river. Its upland woodlands – some natural and some reforested – contain oak, maple and walnut species. The preserve’s fens – some natural and some in need of restoration -- are delicate ecosystems containing rare vegetative species. And the section of the West DuPage River that flows through Warrenville Grove contains remnants of an historic grist mill raceway.

Recreation
