This layer will be updated as major changes require, usually after the acquisition of additional property.There are a few columns in the Attribute Table that bear some explanation. The Site_Numbr column simply lists the Preserve number, determined by the order in which the first acquisition for each preserve was made. In other words, Van Patten Woods is Preserve #1 because the first parcel the District acquired was at Van Patten Woods. Gander Mountain is Preserve #2 because the next parcel acquired (besides those at Van Patten Woods) was at Gander Mountain.The Site_Name column presents the Preserve's official name. The Site_Acres column provides the total acreage for the entire preserve, based upon the survey acreage when each parcel was acquired.The Type column denotes whether the table entry depicts a Golf Course (GC) or Forest Preserve (FP) holding.The Interest Type column lists whether the table entry depicts a fee simple or license/easement holding.The Acres column lists the acreage of the holding (for either fee simple or license/easement) based upon the preserve's calculated area.The URL column provides a web address that can be used to obtain either more information about the specific preserve or about the entire Forest Preserve District.
