Upcoming WPPC Events

WPPC at the Green Living Expo November 5, 2022

Native Garden SeminarGreen Living Expo: This year’s Green Living Expo will be At McHenry County College on November 5 from 10am to 3pm.  This is an in-person event for anyone wanting to learn how they can take care of the planet in their everyday lives.  As a sponsor of the event, the WPPC will be present with a booth showcasing our various programs.  Please stop by, say hello, check out what we’re up to and see how you can incorporate native plants into your own landscape.

Natural Landscaping Seminar:  Our annual Natural Landscaping Seminar will be held on February 18, 2023 in the Luecht Auditorium at McHenry County College.  We’re already at work signing up some great speakers for the event.  We hope you’ll take a break from the winter weather and come hear some wonderful presentations on native plants, habitats and the critters they attract. We’ll post more details here as they become available.
