Bull Creek drains an 11.2-square-mile subwatershed of the Des Plaines River Watershed in central Lake County. The South Branch of Bull Creek flows through Loch Lomond, St. Mary’s and Butler Lakes before joining the North Branch of Bull Creek north of Illinois Route 137 in Libertyville. From there, Bull Creek flows east to the Des Plaines River at Independence Grove Forest Preserve.
The BCBB Council is ready to move forward with the mission of improving water quality, protecting and restoring natural resources, reducing flood damage, enhance education and stewardship and guiding new development to benefit the watershed goals. Application to become an official member of the council requires adoption of a community/organizational resolution, or a letter of commitment to use the plan as a guidance document within the context of community or organizational decision-making as it affects the greater watershed goals. Please contact Kathleen O'Connor, or call 847-816-6800 if you have questions about council membership
