Making Lake Forest Open Lands A Part of Your Legacy
Lake Forest Open Lands Association continues to this day to be dedicated to conserving our natural environment. And today, the original single nature preserve has evolved to 8 nature preserves and represents over 900 acres of prairie, wetland, savanna, ravine and woodlands. Lake Forest Open Lands also provides environmental education programming to over 3,000 students every year.
Lake Forest Open Lands Association is supported completely by the generosity of members, donors and volunteers. In fact, just seven years after we were founded, we received our first planned gift when John “Archie” Stevenson made a gift of land in 1974 and included Lake Forest Open Lands in his estate plans. Since that time, many of our members and friends have made Lake Forest Open Lands Association part of their estate plans.
Your generosity makes it possible for Lake Forest Open Lands Association to ensure the continued preservation and restoration of our lands. Land is our legacy – we hope you’ll consider making Lake Forest Open Lands a part of yours.
Lake Forest Open Lands Association is a 501(c)(3) organization. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847.234.3880 x16 with any questions regarding your planned giving.
