Starved Rock Foundation
-To support Visitor Center programs that educate, conserve, and provide recreational opportunities, while raising funds for the improvement of Starved Rock State Park through volunteerism
Since 1991, The Starved Rock Historical and Educational Foundation has been the non-profit organization for Starved Rock State Park in North Central Illinois, rooted in conservation, education, and recreation. Its volunteer program includes interpretive hikes and staffing the Visitor Center information desk, and the Foundation raises funds for the park’s improvement through memberships, donations, and profits from the volunteer-run LeRocher Book Store. The elected board of directors has donated over $450,000 in the past 30+ years.
