For the Love of Starved Rock

Starved Rock Lodge, Starved Rock Foundation, Starved Rock Walkers Club and Starved Rock Clean Up Crew, in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, have formed a collaboration and fundraising campaign “For the Love of Starved Rock” to help generate interest and monetary donations to improve park trails and preserve the natural resources for future generations.

Our Hope:
Through the For the Love of Starved Rock fundraising efforts, our primary goal is to make necessary repairs to the trail system. By securing donations for infrastructure improvements and providing education to our visitors on the proper use of our natural resources, we will ensure that Starved Rock State Park will be accessible and enjoyed by millions of visitors in the years to come.

Our Primary Goal:
Our primary goal is to preserve Starved Rock State Park for generations to come. The overall fundraising goal is to raise $500,000 to be used to rebuild and replace pathways and trails in the park. Our first project is to build an ADA-accessible trail that connects from our overflow parking lot to an overlook deck over French Canyon. The second project is to build a boardwalk for LaSalle Canyon and the third project is rebuilding the bridge into Tonti Canyon.

For the Love of Starved Rock Campaign has partnered with the Starved Rock Country Community Foundation to manage all Campaign funds. Financial contributions made on behalf of the Campaign are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations.

Your gift to the "For The Love of Starved Rock" is most welcome.

Financial donations may also be mailed or made in person at our office 241 Marquette St, LaSalle, IL 61301. If you prefer to make a financial contribution by mail, please make your check payable to SRCCF. For more information about For The Love of Starved Rock, please contact (815)252-2906.
