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

Native Plant Sale:  We have very reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s Native Plant Sale that was scheduled for May 3rd.  We lost access to our venue at MCC and were unable to confirm that any large gatherings would be allowed by early May.  Please pencil us in on your calendars for next year’s sale on May 2, 2021.

Monty & Rose Presentation:  This short film and Q&A session on the endangered Piping Plovers that nested in Chicago last year has been postponed until this summer.  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.

Garden Walks:  This year’s first walk on April 26th is cancelled.  We hope to conduct all other walks as scheduled beginning with the tour of the Groat property on June 20th at 10 AM.  Click the button below for more information on this summer’s yard walks.
