Terms and conditions »
Millions of visitors spend time all throughout our beautiful forest preserves. Your bench will offer lasting enjoyment for preserve and trail users and a meaningful way to mark an occasion or celebrate a loved one. Benches are available for installation along developed trails at most of our preserves and come with a 3-by-1.5-inch plaque engraved with your personalized inscription. Bench options include:
The Trailside Bench
The Garden Bench
The fee for commemorative benches includes purchase of the bench, installation and maintenance costs, a stone pad (to meet accessibility requirements), and purchase and engraving of your recognition plaque.
For more information about the Green Gifts program, or to schedule a consultation at the preserve in which you are interested, please email or call Katherine O'Rourke at 847-968-3438.
