Heller Nature Center, a 97-acre preserve of the Park District of Highland Park, has been under public stewardship since 1977. Heller’s careful resource management, including restoration and controlled burns, provides a taste of an authentic native landscape. Visitors to Heller can also enjoy a picnic in our woodlands, visit the Design in Nature exhibit in the Goodman Log Cabin, or rent cross-country skis and explore our three miles of trails.
