Support Blanding’s Turtle Conservation in Kane County

Help endangered Blanding’s turtles thrive in Kane County! You can support turtle conservation through the Kane Forest Preserve Foundation’s new Adopt a Turtle program.


By adopting a turtle, you’ll aid the Forest Preserve District of Kane County’s Blanding’s turtle conservation efforts and research, above and beyond their current capacity. If we reach our $6,000 goal, the District would be able to hire another summer-seasonal intern to help learn more about Kane County’s Blanding’s turtle populations. Donations would also go toward field supplies and technology to further aid in the study of this important species.  

(Note: These are ceremonial adoptions. No turtles will be removed Forest Preserve District property.)
