Great Oaks of Barrington winners will be recognized during a short ceremony starting at 3:00 pm, then everyone will have an opportunity to help plant native wetland plants and clean up debris left by Flint Creek at the 5.6-acre site.

Last year, Barrington High School students and teachers together with volunteers from the community installed over 300 native plants.

This year, the volunteers expect to plant over 700 native wildflowers and grasses and cleaning up litter around Flint Creek — rain or shine.  For those who want to bring nature home, BACT will have 100 free oak saplings to share and nurture.

Since 2011, BACT staff and volunteers have cleared debris, installed native plants, and spread native seed in Pederson Preserve to provide food and shelter for wildlife, reduce erosion, facilitate filtration, improve water quality, and contribute to the area’s overall environmental health.

The BACT is dedicated to preserving the open lands, natural resources, equestrian character, and scenic beauty of the Barrington communities.

Are you ready to stop tooth decay in its tracks?! The best way to do that (along with routine dental check ups ahem ahem) is by flossing! If you find regular flossing boring...then try the Waterpik!💦 Perfect for getting those hard to reach areas of your mouth with a clean stream of water, just like we use here at Pennino Family Dentistry! This handy tool will also help keep your breath fresh longer (always a plus!)⁠

If you want one for yourself, make sure to stop by the office to purchase!⁠
