What's going and what's not this spring.

Virtual Spring Garden Walk: Since we were not able to have our Spring Garden Walk we’ve done the next best thing and that is to video the walk so you could still enjoy it. Thanks to Randy and Nancy Schietzelt for allowing us to tour their wonderful property and give us a tour of the many great spring wildflowers to be found there. Enjoy!

 

Future Garden Walks:  This year’s walk at the Groat property on June 20th is cancelled.  Look for a virtual yard walk video near the end of June when more plants are in bloom.  We hope to conduct some walks in person this summer, but it will depend on whether and when large gatherings are permitted.  Click the button below for more information on this summer’s yard walks.

Natural Garden in Your Yard:  We will conduct our native plant garden mentoring program this year!  If you would like some help planting a garden full of native plants in the spring of 2021, please send in a Mentoring Application.  We will contact you toward the end of the summer with more details.  Check out the Mentoring Page for information on the program.

Monty & Rose Presentation:  This short film and Q&A session on the endangered Piping Plovers that nested in Chicago last year has been postponed.  We’ll post the new date when it’s finalized.  Information on the presentation is available in our Events Listings.  If you are registered you will receive an email with the new date.
