Famed for its longevity and endurance, strength, and steadfastness, the White Oak is regarded spiritually as the Tree of Life. Along the largest and longest-lived oaks of southwestern Illinois, the White Oak provides long-term sustenance and protection to many living things in our region. Because of this, we consider the White Oak something special.
The White Oak Society honors the people, businesses, and foundations making annual gifts (cumulatively) of $500 or more to HeartLands Conservancy. Many of the programs we offer and natural areas and farms we have protected is the result of this growing circle of friends.
The White Oak Society makes a significant impact in southwestern Illinois, ensuring protected open space and sustainable communities for generations.
We invite you to join this growing and dedicated group.
