Save the date! We will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary celebration. Expect all this for fun tonight:
- Walk among the Spring wildflowers at a naturally and lovingly restored facility,
- Good food with a potluck dinner,
- A highly recommended speaker on wetlands,
- New and renewed friendships!
Come early, you are welcome to walk the grounds to see the reintroduction of native plants to the host church. Others will be there to help you identify these native to Illinois wildflowers. It is a convenient facility too, being along Interstate 88 (Reagan Expressway).
We will have a Potluck dinner and there are always many excellent choices. We ask that you bring a dish/pot to serve, or a side/dessert. If you can, please bring a washable plate to save on refuse. New members, friends and visitors are also welcome.
After dinner relax to our speaker’s presentation with Gary Sullivan, Senior Restoration Ecologist at The Wetlands Initiative. This non-profit has been active in restoring wetlands at Midewin National Forest (really a prairie) and Dixon Waterfowl Refuge.
