“We are fortunate to have many opportunities to explore the outdoors in the Northwest suburbs. Our community is filled with incredible outdoor spaces that bring us together,” Commissioner Kevin Morrison said. “I encourage everyone to join me at Busse Lake for a fishing derby and to learn about all the outdoor activities the Northwest suburbs have to offer.”
