The Long Grove-Kildeer Garden Club's meeting on Monday, November 13 at 9:30 a.m. features a presentation by Jacob Jozefowski of the Lake County Storm Water Management Commission. He will help you learn about the importance of our wetlands in Lake Country. Wetlands were once a dominant feature of the Illinois landscape and played a large role in reducing flooding, recharging groundwater supplies, filtering pollutants and nutrients, and providing highly productive habitats for plants and animals. We need to clean up our wetlands. We need to re-establish habitat corridors and reintroduce native species into wetlands. We need to do this for our environment, for the safety of our homes, and for our health. Come to the meeting and learn how you can help.

Guests are always welcome.

When: Monday, November 13 at 9:30 a.m.

Where: Reed-Turner Nature Center, 3849 Old McHenry Rd, Long Grove, IL 60047.
