We are 20
Conserve Lake County is 20!
Thankful for Nature and All of You
Twenty years ago, people came together to form an organization to protect the wide open spaces of Lake County. Since then, Conserve Lake County has been able to increase protected open spaces, nurture and restore the land, and introduce ways to help nature at home with Conservation@Home.
What unites those who had the vision twenty years ago with all of us today, is our mutual appreciation of nature here in Lake County, Illinois. We walk, bike, fish, explore, bird-watch, garden, hunt, paddle, swim, photograph, ponder and breathe in nature. We value the land, water and wildlife, and we act to conserve nature so we can enjoy it now and well into the future.
