About

Located within McKinley Woods-Kerry Sheridan Grove in Channahon, the Forest Preserve District of Will County's Four Rivers Environmental Education Center rests within a picturesque setting. Nestled among oak trees and positioned where the Des Plaines, Du Page, and Kankakee Rivers meet to form the Illinois River, the Center offers a stunning view of the outdoors and peaceful surroundings for conferences, banquets, and weddings.

The Forest Preserve District of Will County is dedicated to promoting and practicing environmental stewardship. Four Rivers was constructed using a number of green technologies and we promote green practices in the planning of all meetings and events held at this facility.

Wonderful and seamless experience.

We would choose Four Rivers all over again. Everything about the venue is gorgeous and we specifically chose it since we are outdoorsy people. The sunset in the Grand Hall was perfect for our ceremony. The lighting, sound, beauty and coziness made our November wedding "epic" for us and our guests. The staff were extremely accommodating on the day of the wedding, especially with our autistic nephew who was struggling to stay because of the loud noises. They offered him a kit, which included headphone and within seconds of putting those on, he exhaled into his calm and stayed for hours. I love that we were able to have our wedding and reception all in the same room and our guests were even more delighted with this convenience.

Spooky Masquerade Wedding

Mary and her team helped us with our dream wedding every step of the way. She gave us ideas on how to plan our day and she accommodated us with every last minute emergency request we had. The night turned out to be everything we wanted and more. Most of guests didn't even know the area existed and loved the natural beauty of the center. We highly recommend Four Rivers.

Spooktacular Halloween Wedding

We had such an enchanting experience at Four Rivers Environmental Education Center! The location is elegant and beautiful where we turned it into The Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Wedding Town. Our family, friends, and guests, had such a magical, spooky, eerie, and mysterious time! We would highly recommend this facility for weddings and other party events.
