The Forest Preserve District of Will County is now offering gift cards for that special nature lover in your life.
The new gift card program started in November – just in time for the holiday gift-giving season – but it will be offered year-round. Gift cards can be used to pay for permits, programs, rentals and more either online or in person.
"Gift cards can be given to family and friends so that they can enjoy fun outdoor experiences in the forest preserves such as camping, picnicking, or visiting the District's six dog parks," said Lynn Kurczewski, the District's director of visitor services. "For fisherman, these cards make a great gift to be used for boat, motor, and kayak rentals; or for bait, tackle and snacks at Monee Reservoir."
Gift cards also can be used to purchase fun, sustainable products at the Forest Preserve's visitor centers and camping gear through the District's "No Gear, No Problem" program.
The cards can be purchased at: Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville, Monee Reservoir in Monee Township, Plum Creek Nature Center in Crete Township and Sugar Creek Administration Center in Joliet. Varying monetary amounts can be loaded onto the newly minted gift cards, which are adorned with photos of nature scenes taken in Will County preserves.
