Green Drinks – April 6, 2016

Join us at April’s Green Drinks as we celebrate Earth Day! April 6 from 5-7, at Duke’s Alehouse & Kitchen, 110 N Main Street in Crystal Lake. We’ll focus on trees and the services they provide for us. We’ll have some local tree seedlings free for the first folks who arrive, thanks to the Arbor Day Foundation and a generous donation.

Our program will be provided by Ed Weskerna, who is the District Manager of the McHenry – Lake County Soil and Water Conservation District (MLSWCD). Ed attended Western Illinois University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy in 1978. Ed has been with the MLSWCD since March 1984.

SWCDs work to sustain natural resources to meet the needs of a growing population. For example, for the past 50+ years the McHenry –Lake SWCD has promoted trees as means of increasing wildlife habitat, reducing soil erosion by wind and water and conserving energy by promoting residential and farmstead windbreaks.

Green Drinks is sponsored by the Environmental Defenders and Duke’s Alehouse & Kitchen.
