The Next Century Conservation Plan
A Legacy Revisted
In 1913, innovative leaders established the Forest Preserves of Cook County and started it on its legacy mission: to protect and preserve nature and provide education, pleasure and recreation to the public. Today, a new generation of leaders and staff is building on a century of past service to create a new legacy – one that will grow the Forest Preserves vision for the next hundred years. The Next Century Conservation Plan addresses contemporary challenges to the vitality of our environment. It will outline goals and actions, supported by innovative best practices, which will continue to protect nature and the benefits nature gives us. The Plan will also offer new ideas to ensure long-term viability for the Forest Preserves.
