The Forge Charitable Adventures has identified unique opportunities to provide significant support to the Village and Township of Lemont by sponsoring a number of initiatives in the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area, home to The Forge: Lemont Quarries Adventure Park.

We have identified six pillar projects for the historically significant area, four of which will be completed by the summer of 2020.  We aim to complete the remaining projects over a 48-month time frame. 

These projects include:

  • Public road improvements

  • New pedestrian footbridge and access trail

  • Improved public parking facilities

  • Children’s Educational Programming

  • Invasive species remediation 

  • Trail restoration and development (bike & pedestrian)


The Forge Charitable Adventures exists to help improve the health of our communities by restoring and preserving natural areas and open space, promoting active stewardship of our environment, and providing access to outdoor education and recreation opportunities to people of all ages, abilities, and socio-economic circumstances where we serve.
