Almond Marsh

Parking, trails and facilities are not available at this site. Parking along Almond Road can be dangerous due to poor sight lines and fast moving traffic.

Use extreme caution.

Roadside parking must comply with traffic regulations.

There are no trails here, but the site is a favorite among birders.

Almond Marsh is home to a great blue heron rookery and rare sedges.

On a good day, an astute observer may sight dozens of species of waterfowl and raptors, including the Cooper's hawk and peregrine falcon. The highlight of this site is the significant marsh and sedge meadow complex.

Approximately 110 acres here enjoy added protection as a dedicated Illinois Nature Preserve.

The entire site is part of the larger Liberty Prairie Reserve, a collaboration of public agencies and private landowners to create a significant landscape of contiguous open space in Libertyville Township.
