We have such an amazing support system of photographers who donate their time and images to communicate our cause. Their passion for wildlife and the outdoor spaces our organization preserves is evident in each image they share. Each photograph was taken right here in Lake County, Illinois.

Thanks for following our blog. Knowing there are others who enjoy the beauty and complexity of our native landscapes is very satisfying.

Wishing you a peaceful holiday season,

Jen Berlinghof & Allison Frederick
