Timeless Messages for Telling the Park District and Forest Preserve Story
How can you use these "Timeless Messages" in your local community?
Illinois park districts and forest preserves are the nationwide leaders in the delivery of public park and recreation services: leaders in the health, wellness and fitness movement; leaders in the social and economic vitality of our communities; leaders in the preservation of our natural resources; and, leaders in providing the highest quality of life for all people in Illinois.
You don't have to be rich to own a park. You just need to support the programs of your local park district and forest preserve. And to get that support, we must tell our story.
The camera-ready posters are sold in sets (one copy of all five 8 1/2 x 11" posters) for $20 plus postage. To order or for more information, call the Illinois Association of Park Districts at (217) 523-4554.

When a little girl hasn't seen anything better, she can only love what she sees.
Land—the good green land that should go for parks, playgrounds and recreation— is being gobbled up at a frightening rate.
Be just a little afraid for the future of your children and their children, and you'll support the programs of your local park district and forest preserve.
A park near every neighborhood. It's not too much to ask. But unless you ask, the good green land won't be there much longer.
Your local park district and forest preserve are prepared to help, if you're prepared to help.
