Lake County Forest Preserve District

Libertyville, United States

As principal guardian of Lake County’s open space and natural areas since 1958, we set the standard in nature and historic preservation, and in outdoor recreation and education. The guiding elements of our mission remain focused on preservation, restoration, education, and recreation.

Acknowledged as a regional and national leader, we protect nearly 31,000 acres of natural land and are the second-largest Forest Preserve District in Illinois.
