Lake Forest Open Lands is proud to recognize the collaborative efforts of an array of conservation groups, civic bodies and institutions of higher learning that have worked with us to further our mission. These efforts include supplying seed from our original prairie for the Chicago Botanic Garden's Millennium Seed Bank Project, participating in the multi-organizational efforts of Chicago Wilderness, working with ecologists and biologists at local universities, and talking with private individuals and corporations about conservation easements.
