We invite you to enjoy our 2022 Forest Preserve Foundation Annual Report. In this review of a year of renewal and reconnecting, you’ll find evidence of both hard work and fun. The “fundraising and raising fun” theme of our annual Conservation Cup golf event raised the bar on both. And take a look at photos, quotes and stats of the Conservation Corps programs we fund – where 140 youth worked in teams to improve the health of the Preserves, while also gaining job skills and enjoying nature. See how restoration helps improve the quality of life for humans and wildlife. Restoration sites are mapped, giving you a birds-eye view of where the work took place. And catch a glimpse of our fantastic board in action and in the field.

Thank you to our wonderful donors – you did this! Through your generosity, the Foundation was able to provide much needed support for projects at the Forest Preserves of Cook County to restore vital lands, help eliminate barriers to equitable access, nourish cultural engagement and nurture the next generation of environmental advocates. Heaps of gratitude to our supporters. This is what you did! Enjoy.
