Who We Are.
The Lake Bluff Open Lands Association is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of open spaces and natural areas in and around Lake Bluff, Illinois.With no paid staff and only seasonal, student workers, we are an “almost” all volunteer organization. In 2011, we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary and we’re excited that we are able to manage over 200 acres of Lake Bluff, in 13 separate natural areas around town as natural areas, including: The Skokie River Land and Water Preserve, The Lake Bluff Site (Lake County Forest Preserve District), The Carolyn Goetz Wetlands Preserve, The Prairie Preserve on Belle Foret Drive, Lake Genevieve, Dwyer Woods, Ravine Park (from Gurney to Moffett), Beach Prairies, Crab Tree Farm Conservation Easements, Moffett Woods, Rockland Wetlands, Bike Path (along Hwy. 176) and Train Station Bike Path Entrance, as well as three additional Conservation Easements on private property throughout Lake Bluff.
Please lend a hand if you can.
Management of our preserves is largely accomplished during our volunteer fun days, usually held on Saturdays and Sundays. For a schedule of upcoming volunteer events, click on the Calendar. We’d love to have you join us. — Larry McCotter, President
