Be a Community Partner
The Forest Preserve District stewards nearly 26,000 acres for the residents of DuPage. Within those landscapes are 60 forest preserves, 166 miles of trails, 31 lakes, and seven centers to develop and maintain. And it can’t do it alone.
The Friends of the Forest Preserve District builds relationships with like-minded individuals who appreciate the beauty, benefits, and importance of the forest preserves — volunteers, outdoor enthusiasts, civic groups, foundations and corporations. And community partners like you.
Our Community, Your Brand
A community partnership with the Friends provides recognition for your company’s support of natural areas year-round and offers opportunities to engage your employees at the DuPage forest preserves.
Your contributions will benefit the Forest Preserve District’s mission and master plan, supplementing tax revenue for the benefit of the DuPage community.

Gather your corporate group for a workday at a DuPage forest preserve.
Two- to three-hour workdays include activities like picking up litter, gardening, removing invasive plants, and collecting native seeds. Round out your workday experience with a picnic shelter reservation.
Corporations can also make long-term commitments to specific forest preserve sites.
