AJewel of Preservation - The Conservancy is located on 35 acres of lightly wooded prairie and wetland along the west side of Bartlett Road. The Conservancy preserves the Village's rural heritage and accentuates the semi-rustic flavor from which South Barrington was developed. Preservation of this open space is managed by The Conservancy Commission.
