Save the Dates for Outreach Events
Outreach Committee has the following events coming up:
Saturday, May 8th - Environmental project - Plant Green Lake Park! 
Meet at noon at the parking lot for Green Lake Park, 1101 Green Knolls Dr. and bring work gloves if you have them, insect repellent and sunscreen if necessary.  The project will be approximately 2-3 hours and please bring family members!  We will be planting native pollinator plants in the cottonwood grove, swale and at the pond shorelines.  This park has been recently renovated and is really a jewel in our community.  Please contact Lisa at if you are willing to help out with this project.  This is a cooperative project sponsored by us, the Buffalo Grove Environmental Action Team, the Buffalo Grove Garden Club and Lake County Stormwater Management Commission and we would like to see as many volunteers as possible.  Will be fun and butterfly friendly!  -Martha and Jeff Weiss
Thursday, October 21 - Bowling with Buddies - a really great event that we jointly sponsor with the Village's Commission for Residents with Disabilities.  Details to follow.
