Education

The primary function of the Education Department is the preservation and interpretation of Lake County's story. This is accomplished in a variety of ways including: educational programming (school field trips, stewardship, general public programs and special events), interpretive exhibitions at our facilities and in the preserves, acquiring and caring for historic collections, and conducting original research. The Education Department manages the operation of the Dunn Museum, the Bonner Heritage Farm, the Adlai E. Stevenson II Historic Home and the Welcome Center at Ryerson Woods. Environmental and history education programs and events for school and scout groups are offered at forest preserves throughout Lake County. Resource-based nature programs are designed to help visitors discover and enjoy the natural world, learn how to enjoy the outdoors in a safe and environmentally sustainable manner, and appreciate the role forest preserves play in improving the quality of life in Lake County. History/cultural-based programs help residents relate through stories about the people, places and events that make Lake County unique. Educational programming for the general public can be found in many forest preserves; our school field trips are available at eight preserves and in schools.
