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.
