Lewis University received the Appreciation of Partners award for 2019 from the Forest Preserve District of Will County.

The Romeoville university earned its award for ongoing assistance with preserve restoration, including brush control and seed collection, preserve shoreline cleanup, district programming and more, according to a news release.

Each year, the Forest Preserve selects its award honorees from dozens of partnering organizations and recognizes the winner with a plaque from the district board.

Lewis professors fostered the partnership by becoming involved with volunteer opportunities for the students with the Forest Preserve District.

Representatives from Lewis University received the award at a recent meeting of the Forest Preserve District of Will County Board of Trustees in Joliet.
