Dear <<First Name>> 

The Power of Us

Pam Todd, April 19, 2015, 2:30-4:30 PM

Room 259, The Priory, Dominican University, 7200 W Division St., River Forest, IL


Ever since we launched West Cook Wild Ones a year and a half ago, we’ve been working on creating a corridor that will include home, school, park and church gardens that are designed to provide habitat for birds, butterflies, bees, and other wildlife.  We’ve learned together, worked together and launched successful events like our Native Garden Tour, our Native Plant Sale and our upcoming Native Gardening Conference, featuring Doug Tallamy and seven other workshops at Dominican University on Sunday, May 17.  So much has been accomplished, but there is also so much more we can do.  We hope you’ll join us to hear about progress that’s been made - but more importantly, we’d like you to come and share your ideas.  What are some things that you think are working well?  What else needs to be done so we can help more people see the importance of creating habitat gardens to save the plants and animals we love and want our children to enjoy?  This meeting will be an opportunity to get to know each other better and share our dreams for what we can do together.
