Citizens for Conservation is hosting a series of Saturday morning winter programs to offer suggestions for simple ways we can maintain our yards and homes in a more earth-friendly manner. This month’s presentation called “The Homeowner and the Water Cycle” is coming up at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 22nd. There may be snow falling today, but on Saturday, you will learn how to deal successfully with rainwater on your property and help protect the Barrington-area water supply.
The presentation will be at Barrington Village Hall (200 S. Hough Street). It will begin Saturday morning at 10, but doors open at 9:30 for coffee, conversation and handouts. The cost to attend is free for Citizens for Conservation members. If you’re not currently a member, the cost is $10.
This session of Citizens for Conservation’s Community Education Habitat Corridors series will feature Kurt O. Thomsen, Ph D., president/hydrogeologist of KOT Environmental Consulting, Inc., and coordinator of the Flint Creek Watershed Partnership. Dr. Thomsen has more than 35 years of groundwater resource management and hydrological investigations.
RSVP by calling us at 847-382-SAVE (7283) or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, phone number and the program name.
The series will run through April. The March presentation will cover “Creating Amphibian Friendly Yards” at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 22nd and April’s presentation will cover “Gardening for Birds and Pollinators” on Saturday, April 12th.
