Spring Valley Nature Club

Promoting Conservation, Nature and Environmental Education

Spring Valley Nature Club Meets 1st Wednesday of Each Month at 7:00 PM

Spring Valley Nature Center 1111 E. Schaumburg Rd. Schaumburg, IL 60194


Spring Valley began as a dream by one of the founders of the Village of Schaumburg, Ellsworth Meineke. Early on he referred to it as "The Spring Valley Dream". It was he who convinced the Schaumburg Park District and the Village of Schaumburg to work together to acquire and preserve land for Spring Valley. Ellsworth founded the Spring Valley Nature Club in 1974 as a not-for-profit service organization which provides volunteer and financial support for Spring Valley and promotes conservation, nature and environmental education. We sponsor nature programs and teacher field trips, and we volunteer at festivals and other fundraisers.

We have been working hard since 1974. Won't you join us?

Donna Johnson,
