Elmhurst Park District is a participant in Conservation In Our Community, a program of The Conservation Foundation that seeks to make impact at the local level through projects that showcase simple things each and every person can do to create positive change for both their community and our environment. The ultimate goal of Conservation In Our Community is for residents to embrace the idea of conservation as a core community value that not only enhances the environment, but also conserves money spent in maintenance and cleanup.
