Lake Forest Open Lands Association (LFOLA) was founded in 1967 by a group of residents concerned that future development pressures would destroy the prairies and woodlands. Lake Forest Open Lands preserves the natural environment through land acquisition, habitat restoration, public education, and conservation advocacy. Today, Open Lands has played a key role in making Lake Forest the unique community it is. Through its private efforts, now supported by 1,400 families and businesses, and working cooperatively with local public bodies, Open Lands now owns or leases over 700 acres which are (or will be) developed as public nature preserves.
