The VCCFoundation has completed many projects over the years in all of our county parks, with one of the most visible in recent years being the Kennekuk Environmental Education Center.
While local taxes pay for the cost of running all four Vermilion County parks and the Conservation District, the Foundation helps to bring extras to the District to the parks you and your family enjoys throughout the year.
We ask that you become a member of the Foundation. Go to the “How You Can Help” page, make your donation and become a member of the VCCFoundation!
