Community Outreach

Welcome to the IDNR Community Outreach page!

At the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, we believe nature is for everyone. We are glad you’re here, and we’re excited to show you all the amazing ways you can connect with nature and your community. Our goal is to help everyone feel like they belong in nature, building a strong connection to the environment and to each other.

Check out the information, resources and programs we have put together just for you. Whether you love exploring the outdoors, watching wildlife, or improving your local environment, we have something special for you.
