Harvard Gateway Project

harvard gateway aerial 400x237The Harvard Community has an opportunity to preserve an important visual gateway to the City at the intersection of Routes 14 and 23 - forever. The 17 1/2 acre property includes three oak groves as well as a valuable segment of Rush Creek. The City of Harvard, Dunham Township, and The Land Conservancy of McHenry County are working together to raise the funds to purchase this property with the goal of it becoming a nature park for City residents and an outdoor classroom for students at the nearby Crosby School.

Get Involved with TLC

There are a variety of ways to help TLC preserve the natural, scenic and agricultural lands that make McHenry County so attractive, and that provide such a high quality of life to its residents.


As a small organization, TLC relies upon the work of volunteers, the financial support of members, as well as the decisions that private property owners make to preserve their land.
