Lake County Forest Preserves | Preservation, Restoration, Education and Recreation

The Preservation Foundation is the charitable partner of the Lake County Forest Preserves. It supports the growth, development and sustainability of our region’s natural lands and cultural heritage.

Like a root system pulls vital nutrients from the soil, the Preservation Foundation drives the mission of the Forest Preserves by responsibly directing funds to projects and programs of the Forest Preserves that might otherwise go unfunded.

Donations to the Preservation Foundation make possible the programs, places and priorities of the Forest Preserves—from the Lake County Discovery Museum and summer concert series at Independence Grove to the Green Youth Farm and habitat restoration.

When you support the Preservation Foundation, you nourish your Lake County Forest Preserves so that they might not merely exist, but grow and thrive.
