Naperville Outdoor Alliance
The Hobson Oak project is administered by Naperville Outdoor Alliance (formerly Naperville Parks Foundation), a non-profit organization that is working to preserve the legacy of this special tree. The majestic Hobson Oak was carefully taken down November 17, 2016. Wood and acorns from the tree were carefully removed and preserved to make products and raise money for the Naperville Outdoor Alliance and other local charities. Naperville Outdoor Alliance is active in outdoor recreation, partnering with like-minded, vibrant businesses, agencies, and individuals to accelerate opportunities for outdoor enjoyment. We are an impact organization with 501(c)(3) tax status.
