Let Their Words Inspire You
At our annual volunteer recognition event, we asked our dedicated volunteers what inspires them to help in our conservation and education efforts. Their words encourage us in our work and we hope they inspire you, too.
How does volunteering for the Forest Preserves make your life better?
“Nature puts everything in perspective. You can simply look around and count your blessings. Makes my spirit blossom, allowing me to re-seed this passion to everyone around me.”
“Makes me feel part of something bigger and long-lasting.”
“It’s good, clean fun! It also reduces the stresses of my day job.”
“People I meet; information that I learn; satisfaction of volunteering for an organization that promotes and preserves nature.”
“Being part of the Forest Preserve team. They don’t pay you, but the benefits are fabulous.”
