  •  I do forest preserve restoration as a hobby (0+ / 0-)

    I'm actually in the Chicago burbs, so I'm close to a few forest preserves.  I go on hikes and also volunteer with the restoration groups.  We're doing great work on the prairie and oak savanna restorations.  I love public lands.

    In the dozens of times I've gone for a hike in the woods, not once have I come across a County employee.  County employees don't need to be present for people to enjoy the forest preserves.  And if the County gov't was on shutdown, there's no reason to close the preserves, not one.  My point still stands.
