John Muir once said “in every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

Every dollar from membership goes directly to conservation efforts that positively impact the quality of life in our local communities. Since 1967, Lake Forest Open Lands’ mission remains devoted to the acquisition and stewardship of our natural landscapes, and to ensuring all generations have a meaningful, lasting connection to nature and our land. With access to 6 preserves encompassing over 800 acres of managed, protected and acquired woodlands, savannas, wetlands, ravines, prairies and 12 miles of walking trails, 365 days a year, we hope you walk in nature. You will receive so much from the land you help to protect.
