Openlands Programs

Protecting and connecting to nature begins where we are. Through local, meaningful, community-oriented programs, we can all do our part to create access to nature for all.

Rooted in our deep understanding of the Urban Forest, Openlands equips communities with the resources needed to be able to effectively and efficiently protect trees in neighborhoods and throughout the region.

Openlands’ educational programs create opportunities for students, teachers, and schools to deepen their connection to themselves, their community, and the natural world.

As Chicago’s regional land trust, Openlands connects and energizes the region through strategic collaboration and local partnerships that protect land, water, and wildlife.
