Gifts to the McHenry County Conservation Foundation bridge the gap between public funding and the increasing cost of maintaining public lands and providing people with quality programs and recreational opportunities. Your support ensures the District can continue protecting the spaces we depend on and enhancing the quality of life for all McHenry County residents and visitors.

Big Woods: Tree Donation
What better way to honor someone than by planting trees for future generations? Donate native trees and shrubs to commemorate a loved one, celebrate a special occasion, or just to restore the oak savannas and woodlands of McHenry County. Help the Conservation District fulfill its pledge to preserve and restore our treasured woodlands.

Regardless of how you choose to give, your donation helps protect our precious natural heritage and supports the goals and objectives of McHenry County Conservation District. We value your gifts of time and support.
