Why did you decided to get involved with Openlands?

I’m very impressed with Openlands’ mission and its involvement in the community.

Openlands’ programs in the Forest Preserves of Lake and Cook Counties pique my interest and align with things that are important to me.  I have passion for the notion of space and vistas…the lands being as native and open as possible while simultaneously supporting human involvement and use.

Where is your favorite place to go outside in our region?

My favorite place to get outside locally is northern Lake County and McHenry County — it’s where I live and where I ride my bike. I am an avid cyclist and it’s been part of my life since I was teenager.  We enjoy some of the most beautiful, natural and open spaces of any urban area in the Country.
