The Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation (JDCF) is pleased to announce the expansion of two local state parks in Jo Daviess County, Illinois. In March 2021, JDCF transferred its 159-acre Oneota Preserve to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), who will manage the property as an addition to the IDNR's existing Hanover Bluff State Natural Area located just outside of Hanover, IL. Simultaneously, JDCF transferred its 333-acre Dvorak Property to the IDNR, who will manage the property as the Dick Dvorak Unit of Apple River Canyon State Park in rural Stockton, IL.
