New Online Store Features Forest Preserve Merchandise

Spread the love

A new online store created by the Forest Preserve District of Will County is open for business, with nature-themed products for outdoor enthusiasts and Take It Outside Challenge participants.

The store sells t-shirts, caps, magnets, and a stylish dog bandana, allowing individuals to express their love for nature. The t-shirts feature creatures and snappy sayings, including, “stay trashy” for raccoons and “keep the drinks coming” for hummingbirds.

“We hope people will like the items we’ve selected,” said Laura Kiran, the Forest Preserve’s director of marketing and communications. “Each one is truly unique, fun to wear, and they make great gifts for other nature lovers you may know.”

Proceeds from sales support The Nature Foundation of Will County, willcountynature.org, which funds various Forest Preserve initiatives. Orders may be placed through the online store, with shipping available twice a week. For questions about orders that have been placed, email – [email protected].

The online store was inspired by the popularity of the yearlong Take It Outside Challenge, with more than 1,000 participants completing more than 40,000 missions, so far. Once participants saw the challenge t-shirt given out to a few random winners each month, they wanted to order their own. That demand sparked the idea for the online store.

The challenge continues to offer new missions weekly, with participants earning points and prizes through the free Goosechase app. The Take It Outside Challenge is part of the broader Take It Outside Campaign, sponsored by The Nature Foundation.
