About Us

Trail-head

We are a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Chicago. At Freedom Trails, we take this sentiment to heart. We are founded with the intent to preserve land and better the environment for the enjoyment of everyone. We are developing programs within the community to help people take care of the world around them. We hope to create a lasting impact through promoting sustainability, preservation, conservation, education and outreach.

 

Freedom Trails is happy to announce that we are now a part of the Plant Conservation Alliance, you can check us out under the Illinois section of their cooperators page, we are also happy to announce our membership in the Chicago Wilderness Alliance.

 

Our Mission:

Freedom Trails Incorporated works to acquire land with the intent to conserve, preserve, and restore the land to its natural state. We do this by working in communities with organizations to participate in outreach projects to spread awareness on matters that concern or impact the environment or ecosystems being restored and protected.

Our Approach:

We’ve started a compost collection service where business, schools and residents can collect their compostable food waste. This compost will then be picked up either weekly, biweekly or monthly and delivered to a local composting facility. Our goal is to divert food waste from landfills and reincorporate it into the environment.
