About us

Citizens for Conservation is a volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring native habitats that once covered northeast Illinois.

CFC proactively preserves and restores land with the help of volunteers and donors who want to protect the health and beauty of the land for future generations. We also work within the community and the region to foster good environmental ethics and practices. Our efforts benefit native plants and animals and enhance ecosystem services such as groundwater protection, flood and erosion control, and carbon storage.
