The Rock Island Conservation Club was founded April 21, 1939 by seven men who saw a need for an organization to preserve local natural resources. In it’s beginnings the club was operated as a pheasant farm. Pheasants were hatched, raised, and then released into the wild. The donated land was originally a sand quarry owned by Moline Consumers Co.

Currently the club continues to promote and support to protect our natural resources and volunteer for conservation oriented organizations. The RICC also one of the 5 organizations that comprise the Quad City Conservation Alliance (QCCA) which owns and operates the QCCA Expo Center.

The club grounds are located 2421 Big Island Parkway in Milan, Illinois  (Directions)
