Support Your Preserves

There are many ways for you to support the Preservation Foundation of the Lake County Forest Preserves—through a gift to the Annual Fund, sponsorship of an exhibition or event, a planned gift, or through a gift made in tribute to a friend, family member or in honor of a special occasion.
