Habitat Restoration

Conservation Education


Our Mission

Richardson Wildlife Foundation (RWF), located in Lee County in north central Illinois, is a not for profit corporation dedicated to the long-term restoration of habitats and the judicious use of our natural resources. The Foundation was established in 1989 by Edward J. Richardson with an initial land donation of 250 acres and three primary goals of Habitat Restoration; Conservation Education; and Research. This area is recognized as part of the Grand Prairie Division of Illinois and was part of the historic, 30,000 acre Inlet Swamp and adjacent bluff lands. The Richardson family has been the sole source of funding as the Foundation has expanded to 1,976 acres through land donations from the Richardsons and the purchase of adjacent farms.
