• We actively restore land
    putting back in place the full biodiversity that once covered northeast Illinois.
  • Saved over 3,000 acres
    of natural lands in the Barrington Area since our beginning in 1971.
  • We educate & encourage
    a caring attitude towards the environment and open space.
  • Volunteers are the CFC lifeblood
    and represent a cross-section of area residents.

Public Programs

CFC's Community Education Committee has created four slide programs to present at group meetings. We give these programs free of charge to garden clubs, churches, homeowner associations, schools, and other organizations. We will be happy to schedule your group meeting.
