Protecting the Nation's First State Dedicated Nature Preserve

Take Action


Dunesland meetings are held four or five times a year on the third Saturday of the month at noon. They are held at the Illinois Beach State Park Resort. We have a luncheon meeting which features a speaker who focuses on an aspect of the environment or ecology.

The view of the lake from the resort is lovely! Please join us, you’ll be glad you did!

There are many opportunities for volunteers to help Dunesland. We need assistance with mailings, contacting legislators, desktop publishing, publicity, press releases, program coordination, archiving documents, fund raising, and web site sales. We can also benefit from your new ideas!

If you would like to work outdoors at the park, there are special opportunities such as wetland burns, adopting a section of the park for monitoring, such as local creeks, ravines, birds, park boundaries, bluebirds, butterflies, reed grass, purple loosestrife, and others. There is also training for identification of plants and animals and dunesland topography.

Please contact Dunesland by email or by phone if you would like to volunteer.
