The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
As an independent 501c3 charity, the Preservation Foundation accepts gifts at every level to help the Forest Preserves do more.
Through his role as president, Nels Leutwiler spends a great deal of his time advocating for the Lake County Forest Preserves. “Through private philanthropy, the Foundation is able to accelerate the agency’s strategic goals and priorities,” he said. "Donations to the Foundation help to preserve and restore Lake County's natural lands and cultural resources in perpetuity.”
Throughout 2020, forest preserves across Lake County experienced record high usage levels as people turned to nature as an escape. Leutwiler, who grew up in Lake Forest enjoying Captain Daniel Wright Woods, has been interested in environmental protection for years and is a lifelong supporter of open lands.
