Christiansen Forest Preserve

Christiansen Forest Preserve is a 45-acre wooded tract near Huxley. It was donated to the conservation board in 1985 by Charles Christiansen. In mid-June, it's a great place to pick wild raspberries and mulberries. The area is designated as a wildlife refuge; no hunting is allowed.  Bird watching, geocaching, and several other activities are possible however we do not have picnic tables or grills available.
