PRESERVING NATURAL AREAS
for PEOPLE, for WILDLIFE,
Three Acres Added to Mouth of Jordan Reserve
On June 5, 2020, LCF purchased three additional acres along the Salt Fork of the Vermilion River. LCF is now preserving a total of 14 acres where Jordan Creek meets the Salt Fork in Vermilion County. The name "Mouth of Jordan Reserve" is inspired by the colorful recreational history of the location.
Nature as Retreat
The current shelter-in-place policy recognizes the importance of hiking and walking in parks and natural places — so get outside! Birds are migrating and spring wildflowers are emerging. Come to LCF's Levee Trail and immerse yourself in a floodplain forest. Our trail at Mettler Woods near Clinton is also open.
Nature Photo Blitz:
LCF encourages you to visit your favorite natural area and photograph whatever inspires you! This is not a contest. Use whatever camera you have. Post photos on your social media of choice and use hashtag #LCFnature. This way, we can search and share photos!
