On Election Day, November 8th, Cook County voters will have the opportunity to vote yes to protect clean water sources, air quality, and wildlife for our residents to enjoy for generations to come.
The forest preserves of Cook County are an integral part of our community and contribute to our quality of life. Our forest preserves play an important role in helping to protect water and air quality, as well as habitat for wildlife. They give residents of all ages a place to explore nature, be active and healthy, and provide job and scholarship opportunities in communities throughout the county.
Openlands is a long-time partner of the Forest Preserves of Cook County and is pleased to support this referendum. You can learn more about the strategic vision for the Forest Preserves of Cook County in the Next Century Conservation Plan.
