about Blackwell Forest Preserve:
Blackwell's McKee Marsh area is the site of a 10-foot-wide interpretive trail that features two observation decks, a bird blind, and signs that describe the rich history and ecological significance of the marsh.
There are ample picnic sites located around the shore of Silver Lake. The Hawthorne Grove picnic area as well as the preserve's four picnic shelters can be reserved for special events. Ground fires are not allowed, but visitors are welcome to bring their own grills and use the hot-coal disposal containers on site.
