The mission of Barrington Area Conservation Trust (BACT) is to preserve our community’s rare and exceptional open spaces for current and future generations. We are able to achieve our mission through the generous support of individual members, family foundations, and business organizations.
Over the years, BACT has many accomplishments, such as, completing one of the largest conservation easements is the state of Illinois to preserve Horizon Farms; rolling out the Heritage Corridor Program to ensure that the rural and scenic character of our residential roads would be preserved, as well as many other accomplishments.
In 2013, Barrington High School’s Leo Club, Green Team, National Honor Society, Horticulture and Environmental Science Programs helped to install native wetland plants cultivated by John Ardente’s horticulture class at Pederson Preserve on Earth Day.
