“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”  ~John Muir

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 hundreds of 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.
 
All memberships are renewable annually on May 1st and expire the following year on April 30th. Memberships are non-refundable.
