Need to Know

The entrance for the grass hiking trails and the Dog Sled Area is located on York House Road west of Delany Road. A permit is required for dog sledding.

Description

The preserve is composed of many individual parcels situated on the west and east sides of Delany Road between Wadsworth Road and York House Road, and on the west and east side of Northwestern Avenue to Green Bay Road between York House Road and Blanchard Road. Some parcels are located within Wadsworth, others in Waukegan.

The preserve is home to two areas for dogs with separate entrances off of York House Road. Permits are required. A separate entrance off of York House Road just east of Delany is for the 11-acre off-leash Dog Park.

Flora & Fauna

Waukegan Savanna is 774 acres of gently rolling terrain with a mix of agriculture fields, oak woodlands with spring woodland flowers, open fields with native prairie plants, and a meandering stream bordered by wetlands and woodlands. This variance in habitat supports a variety of birds including goldfinches, black-capped chickadees, ruby-crowned kinglet and red-tailed hawk.
