Conservation World at the Illinois State Fair

Building the foundation of a lifetime of outdoor memories at Conservation World: Family time, new experiences

Make plans to visit Conservation World during the Illinois State Fair, Aug. 12-21 in Springfield. Youth can try to catch a fish or practice their skills at the archery and BB gun ranges. Follow the meandering trails to explore outdoor Illinois - from parks, mining and forests to wildlife, fish and endangered plants and animals. You'​ll find plenty of free activities, along with a shady place to sit on a park bench and relax while visiting the state fairgrounds.
