RESTORATION DAYS

2004_0109Perihelion20130010.JPG

Help Restore an Oak Savanna and Pioneer Cemetery

Third Sunday of the month, 1 to 3:30 pm

Come to our regularly scheduled restoration day on the third Sunday of each month--Or call us and we'll plan a restoration day to fit your schedule!

Join with other nature-loving volunteers at the Alden Sedge Meadow, a McHenry County Conservation District site, to restore a globally-endangered ecosystem. We will be removing invasive plants, sowing native seeds, and stacking brush. No previous experience required! We will provide training, work gloves and tools. Please dress in layers, and wear sturdy shoes or boots. After working, we will take an interpretive walk in this amazing natural area, normally closed to the public except for occasions like this.

Meet at 15820 IL Route 173, between Hebron and Harvard, Illinois.

Call Jack or Judy Speer at 815-648-1372 to let us know you are coming!


PERIHELION 2018


SATURDAY, JANUARY 6    Noon to 4:30 PM

FROM CHAOS TO CREATIVE COMMUNITY

It’s natural to feel afraid and anxious during these chaotic times. It’s also natural, according to the science of chaos theory and the story of the universe, that chaos (unpredictability) is woven into the fabric of the cosmos and sparks new transformations. This interactive event will:

  • Celebrate the deep ancestral wisdom within us all
  • Engage our minds, bodies, hearts and souls
  • Help us face the chaos with courage and insight
  • Move us forward on our life’s path with compassion and connection

Suggested donation $25 for the programs of Small Waters Education. No one turned away for lack of funds.  Contact us for more details:  smallwatersnfp@yahoo.com
