Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation

The Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation, a locally based, nonprofit land trust, works with landowners on voluntary conservation projects using land acquisition, land donations, conservation easements, and landowner registry, to help protect the natural resources, open space, and farmland in beautiful Jo Daviess County in northwest Illinois.

The Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation’s mission is to protect the natural heritage, spectacular scenery, and agricultural character of Jo Daviess County, IL, and the surrounding area. 

We accomplish this mission by: 

  • Educating people about land stewardship and resource conservation
  • Permanently protecting land from inappropriate development by working with willing landowners through conservation easements or land donations
  • Supporting recreation that promotes appreciation of our natural resources
  • Working with other like-minded groups
