What is the Conservation Cup?

This fun day of golfing and gathering is the Forest Preserve Foundation’s signature fundraising event.

The Foundation supports projects at the Forest Preserves of Cook County that restore vital public lands, engage in climate action, eliminate barriers to equitable access, nourish cultural engagement and nurture the next generation of environmental advocates.
