We are Open!
Governor Pritzker moved Illinois into Phase 5. The Forest Preserves will follow the new guidance provided by our public health experts to protect our employees and our visitors.
Indoor Permitted events will operate as follows:
- We have returned to standard capacity for available indoor room rentals (Dan Ryan Pavilion- 120 guests, Thatcher Pavilion- 80 guests East Room/40 guests West Room, VRC – 100 guests Community Room/40 guests Classroom)
- Masks are not required indoors for fully vaccinated guests. We recommend unvaccinated guests wear masks when indoors.
- Masks are not mandatory outdoors when social distancing can be maintained.
After a very difficult year, we hope COVID-19 indicators will continue to move in a positive direction and, in the near future, we can return to normal. We will closely monitor the evolving situation and make adjustments based on science and guidance from our public health experts.
Please reach out and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
