Vital Lands Illinois

Vitally important and irreplaceable natural landscapes across Illinois are threatened by development, pollution, and other pressures. These lands are in urgent need of preservation. Grand Victoria Foundation supports acquisition and preservation of these extraordinary places, with an overall goal of creating a statewide, connected system of natural lands, ensuring their permanent protection and long-term stewardship, and building public support for conservation.

This grant program was crafted through an extraordinary collaboration with land conservation leaders across Illinois. It is part of a broader effort to improve the way land conservation is practiced in Illinois and engage citizens and public officials to ensure the long-term preservation of Illinois' most vital landscapes.
