The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is a member-based, private nonprofit dedicated to preserving natural, scenic and agricultural land.

McHenry County's landscape is richly diversified. Its features range from glacial remnants such as kames, moraines and outwash plains to the more recent woodlands, prairies, stream corridors, bogs and fens.

Since 1991, The Land Conservancy has helped protect more than 2,500 acres of McHenry County's prairies, wetlands and woodlands by working with private landowners, communities and other partners. They do this by accepting donated conservation easements and direct acquisition of property (through purchase or donation).
