The Friends of Carl Sandburg at Connemara work to provide financial support for preserving the legacy of Carl Sandburg through vital education programs, historic preservation, protection of museum collections as well as through natural resource, goat herd and trail maintenance projects at Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site. The site welcomes nearly 90,000 visitors each year to experience a piece of living American history. Government funding alone can no longer maintain special treasures like the Sandburg Home without financial reinforcement.
