JDCF is a non-profit land conservancy that works in and around Jo Daviess County, IL to help preserve this unique and beautiful part of the Midwest. Because Jo Daviess County does not have a forest preserve district to protect and make available parks and recreation areas, JDCF provides this service to our community. We currently have over 1,000 acres open to the public to enjoy outdoor recreational activities free of charge. JDCF is only able to do this work through the support of individuals such as you. With a minimum investment of $50, you and your family will become members of JDCF.
