These projects have led to the protection of several new sites in Kendall County, including Jay Woods Forest Preserve, Little Rock Creek Forest Preserve, and several parcels in Reservation Woods.
Our Fox River Education & Outreach Initiative seeks to help people become more aware of and enjoy the Fox River, which runs right through Kendall County, and ultimately leads to increased protection and care of the river. Learn more about the Fox River Initiative!
The Conservation Foundation was also instrumental in planning and facilitating the Protect Kendall Now! project which has been used by local agencies to guide the protection of thousands of acres of open space. The Conservation Foundation has also worked with the Kendall County Forest Preserve to pass two successful public referendums to fund open space acquisition.
The Dickson-Murst Farm hosts several public events each year including two Days at the Farm and a Beer, Bands & Barns event. The events are planned and conducted by the Dickson-Murst Farm Partners, a volunteer group of individuals from around the county that pitch in to maintain the facilities and conduct the events.
