The mission of the Preservation Foundation is to extend and accelerate the Lake County Forest Preserves goals through private philanthropy to restore and preserve Lake county’s natural and cultural resources into perpetuity. Funding will help assess the structural integrity and complete a biological inventory of Lake Michigan Ravines. The information will be used to update the 2009 Strategic Sub-watershed Identification Process. This will help to provide a critical roadmap for conservation – identifying highest priority ravines for conservation and serving as a tool to secure outside funding.
