Homer Glen Foundation receives Community & Nature Award
The Foundation was selected as a recipient of the 2012 Homer Glen Community & Nature Award for our efforts with the Mike Hike and support of the Homer Glen Heroes Trail.

Established in 2004 by local residents, the Homer Glen Foundation is a not-for-profit community organization with a purpose of ensuring that people of all ages and abilities have access to recreational amenities and the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.
The vision of the Homer Glen Foundation is creating a community where children can play at neighborhood parks, students can ride their bikes to school, and the daily commute provides scenic vistas. The Homer Glen Foundation strives to Connect Our Community through parks, trails, and open spaces so residents can experience healthy, happy lives.
