Summer is a fine time to be outdoors in Illinois! There many activities you can take part in all around the state. Learn about the great outdoors in this month's Kids for Conservation® feature. We want to hear what you have been doing in Illinois’ great outdoors this summer, too. Send us your observations, photos, artwork and stories/poems for posting on this Web page!

Kids for Conservation® requests are intended for Illinois youth younger than 18 years of age. Educator resources are also posted on this page.
