The mission of the Natural Land Institute is to create an enduring legacy of natural land in northern Illinois for people, plants, and animals.
George B. Fell, founder of the Natural Land Institute, wrote:
We are living at the time of man's final conquest over the wilderness. What we have saved, and what we may save in the next few years, will be all the true wild nature that will remain to pass on from generation to generation in the years ahead. There will never be another chance.
George Fell created a land conservation movement that has protected the wonderful diversity of native plants and animals and the beautiful tapestry of life that we enjoy. Supporters and staff of the Natural Land Institute have sustained his important work of protecting the forests, rivers and wetlands that are threatened throughout northern Illinois.
We need your help to fulfill our vision for the future - a world in which people recognize that we are a part of nature and act with the knowledge that our future depends upon preserving the natural systems that support all life on Earth.
