St. James Farm, located in Warrenville, is a 612-acre forest preserve containing native plant and animal species, agricultural fields, barns and horse stables. It’s a scenic place to visit year-round for a leisurely picnic, or a hike through the woods on the various paths. The preserve offers exciting opportunities to explore all year round, like nature photography excursions and geocaching, but during Christmas St. James Farm becomes especially festive!
