And, thank you, Lake Forest for helping us bring the Bagpipes & Bonfire spirit to our neighborhoods on Saturday!

Bagpipes & Bonfire is Lake Forest Open Lands’ traditional autumn celebration of our community and its beautiful open spaces. It is also the primary fundraiser for Lake Forest Open Lands and the proceeds support our important conservation mission and work.
Our beautiful nature preserves have remained open to all these past few months and the support of the community is more important than ever to continue to maintain them. Therefore, we are committed to keep the LFOLA fire burning again this fall in the hearts of our community if not in person!
We are not able to host the traditional picnic and bonfire on the Middlefork Farm field this year. To raise awareness of Lake Forest Open Lands and this event, we hope to keep our tradition strong and make this community spirit available to as many people as possible while engaging the community responsibly.
Despite all in 2020, the pipers will march and the sun will set. We hope you can join in!
