Conserve Lake County

The work we do today helping people preserve and take care of open space and farmland will forever shape Lake County’s future. To keep Lake County a great place to live we need to balance growth with preservation.

  • We work with landowners so they understand the options they have to preserve their land.
  • We facilitate land preservation arrangements between landowners and other land conservation organizations such as the Lake County Forest Preserve District, the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission and other conservation land trusts.
  • Our work in the Liberty Prairie Reserve is a model for preserving land through public-private partnerships.
  • We are leading a countywide partnership that has developed a vision for Lake County's open space future with a goal to preserve 20% of the county by 2030.
  • Lake County is home to federally-endangered species. We are partnering with the Illinois Nature Commission and other organizations to preserve a rare prairie remnant in west Waukegan.
  • Since 2004 we have preserved over 400 acres of land, through land donations, easements, landowner negotiations, and land purchases. Read the stories
  • We use our outreach programs to educate people about the benefits of open space.
