Champaign County's Forest Preserves - We're Closer Than You Think!

Nearly 4,000 acres of natural beauty are preserved and protected by the Champaign County Forest Preserve District. Gifts to the Friends Foundation support the district's six forest preserves and ensure that these Grand Prairie landscapes remain protected for generations to come.

Your 2018 gift will preserve and restore native landscapes, build more Kickapoo Rail Trail miles, protect the night sky at Middle Fork River, construct a collections space at the Museum of the Grand Prairie, and support other high priority projects.
