128. Help Restore Flint Creek for Earth Day

 Want to make a difference this Earth Day? Then you and your kids won’t want to miss the Citizens for Conservation’s special Earth Day class  in Barrington this Saturday, April 7th. The best part about the class — it’s all outdoors!
To teach the importance of plant restoration, the volunteer group is inviting the public to help them restore Flint Creek Savanna South in Barrington. Because some cutting and lifting brush is involved to make room for native vegetation, participants are encouraged to bring their own work gloves, insect repellent, pruners or loppers (it’s O.K. if you have to look it up!). Citizens for Conservation also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes, socks, long pants and long-sleeved shirts.
As a reward for their hard work, kids will receive an educational poster showing native prairie plants, mammals, birds and insects that make a restored woodland and prairie their home. On top of that, there will be marshmallows for roasting on a bonfire and fifty free Sonic Slushies waiting for them after they’ve finished reviving the Barrington creek–Is there any better way to celebrate an accomplishment?…

Playing Polo in Barrington Hills

159. Barrington Hills Polo Part II

 There’s a certain mystique about the sport of polo that has always made me curious, especially since it’s played right here in Barrington. So I recently stopped by the Barrington Hills Polo Club’s Oakwood Farms field to check out a scrimmage, learn more about the sport and meet some local players. My husband, two kids and I pulled our car into the farm’s drive and right on up to the side of the field where the players’ families were parked and out picnicking. It was a regular Saturday morning scrimmage, it was a beautiful day and I was struck by how much these players seemed to love the open space, fresh air and the thrill of their fast-paced sport.

One of the greatest things about the Barrington Hills Polo Club is that……
