The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County offers many of its popular events and services with a dedicated corps of volunteers. These individuals not only maintain our long-standing programs but also bring many new experiences to forest preserve visitors. During the 2016 – 2017 fiscal year, 2,255 volunteers contributed 59,449 hours at a value of more than $1.5 million to our organization. This Thanksgiving, we are most thankful for our volunteers who give their time, talents and resources to support our staff, mission and purpose. Thank you, volunteers!
