We are pleased to announce our partnership with the Lake County Forest Preserves (LCFP), in Lake County, Illinois, in our search for their next Executive Director of the Preservation Foundation. The Preservation Foundation is the charitable partner of the Lake County Forest Preserves that is nationally and locally recognized as a leader in preservation. The Preservation Foundation leverages and benefits from the strong existing brand equity of the LCFP in their mission to build private philanthropy to restore and preserve Lake County’s natural and cultural resources in perpetuity.

This unique public-private partnership presents an excellent opportunity for someone who is strong at building relationships across a variety of constituencies and who can continue to build a fundraising strategy that will make an impact for generations to come.

The successful candidate for this leadership opportunity must have a knowledge of and passion for environmental issues, land conservation, and outdoor recreation. If you are energized by the ways we are all connected to our natural resources, if you see how nature improves our communities, and if you understand the need for ongoing education to support our resources, then we encourage you to apply.

Working together, the District and the Preservation Foundation understand that protecting and cherishing our natural resources makes communities more livable, improves quality of life, and creates a more dynamic local economy.
