Since 1994, the ICF has partnered with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources to raise financial resources dedicated to protecting and enhancing the natural wonders of Illinois, and to providing conservation education and outdoor heritage opportunities for Illinois youth and other outdoor enthusiasts. ICF's broad conservation mission really comes alive at the Torstenson Youth Conservation Education Center where upwards of 6,000 youth have the chance to camp, fish, hunt; or to learn about nature and the outdoors in a remarkable 750-acre conservation area. Please join us as a member, donor, or partner and be part of conserving Illinois natural areas and enriching the lives of Illinois citizens by supporting ICF!
