Listed below are a few of the attractions Lake of the Woods has to offer for teachers wishing to take students on a fieldtrip that will allow them to see more of the beautiful Champaign County Forrest Preserves.

The Museum of the Grand Prairie is located at the Lake of the Woods. This museum was founded in order to preserve what is left of the Eastern Central Illinois Prairie. Along with preservation, the museum has many programs for children and free tours for groups, but they must make a reservation 2 weeks prior to the visit.
