  Since 2009, the Forest Preserve District has been conducting habitat restoration at Messenger Woods Nature Preserve in conjunction with Openlands, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the City of Chicago, and the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority.

In 2015, the District is continuing habitat restoration activities at the preserve, including prescribed burn management, invasive species control, enrichment seeding, and erosion repairs. This work is expected to continue through 2019.
