Spring has finally arrived in Chicago, and with it comes a renewed sense of energy and optimism. The longer days, warmer weather, and blooming flowers bring a sense of renewal and hope.
As the great Chicago architect and urban planner, Daniel Burnham once said, “Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood… Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.”
At the Friends of the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse, we have been aiming high and making big plans to Preserve, Restore and Celebrate the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse. With the support of our dedicated community, we are confident that we can save this beloved landmark for generations to come.
To help us organize our volunteers and to help manage and complete our Mission, we have created five Working Groups of volunteers.
- Community Engagement
- Historic Preservation
Our mission would not be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers who share our passion and commitment to this iconic landmark.
As a volunteer with Friends of the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience, meet new people, and make a meaningful impact in preserving a historic Chicago landmark cherished by our city.
I invite you to join us on this journey. Whether you are a volunteer, a donor, or a supporter, your contribution will make a difference. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our volunteer page at savethelighthouse.org/volunteer to learn more.

Also, we invite you to several in-person events presenting Chicago Harbor Lighthouse – Past, Present, and Future presented by Edward Torrez, AIA, NCARB, Preservation Architect.
Mark your calendars for Friday, May 19, 2023, at 6:00 PM at the Burnham Park Yacht Club and Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at 6:30 PM (optional dinner at 5:00 PM) at the Cliff Dwellers Club; details below.
All of us appreciate your support for our Mission.
Be Safe and Be Well!
