The Conservation Foundation saves land and saves rivers, and they’ve been at it for more than 45 years. We welcome Brook McDonald, President/CEO, and Steve McCracken, Director of Watershed Protection, as our guest speakers at our September 19 membership meeting, at 7 p.m. at the Oak Brook Recreation Center Central Park West Building. Guests are welcome.
Messrs. McDonald and McCracken will provide an overview of Conservation Foundation activities with emphasis on Watershed Protection and an update of the Salt Creek Graue Mill dam modification project.
Founded in 1972, The Conservation Foundation is one of the region’s oldest and largest not-for-profit land and watershed conservation organizations dedicated to preserving and restoring open space, protecting rivers and watersheds and promoting stewardship of the environment in northeastern Illinois.
The Conservation Foundation focuses their work in DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will Counties, but have also had the honor of working on significant projects in Cook, DeKalb, Grundy and LaSalle Counties.
