The Friends of the Forest Preserves protects, restores, and promotes the forest preserves to ensure they thrive for us and for future generations. Great civic leaders started the forest preserves 100 years ago and now, its our turn to be those great civic leaders that ensure the preserves are here and healthy for the next 100 years.
Volunteers are out every week throughout the forest preserves of Cook County. Contact FOFP and they can hook you up with a group or help you set up your own volunteer event. Volunteers remove invasive plants, collect trash, assist with prescribed burns, work on trails, and gather and spread seeds to restore the natural health of the ecosystem. You will love being outside, volunteering, and enjoying nature with some like-minded people. Help get something done and volunteer today!
