The Nature Conservancy in Illinois supports natural areas restoration through education, advocacy, networking and citizen science. Because Illinois is second only to Iowa in the entire United States of America, in percentage of natural areas lost to agriculture and other forms of horizontal development, their work is immeasurably critical to sustaining the incredible remaining biodiversity of plant and animal species. They offer and promote many different kinds of volunteer opportunities while getting kids and people of all ages outside in nature!
