    I was wondering if your meeting about the honeybees on Oct 22 is open to the public. I belong to the Elgin Gardeners of America and we would love to learn more about the bees. We would only have about 10 or less coming to your meeting.

    Thank you

      Hi Debra, Please join us at our meeting! Guests are warmly welcomed and we look forward to meeting your club members. Hope you can join us on other meetings and events like our trip to Lurie Gardens in Chicago.

      Hi Debra. That meeting with Robert Blauwkamp was actually in 2015. We are having a great presentation by Valerie Blaine on Oct. 29 about oaks. The Wild Ones national website, which is what we are a part of, had been going through some changes. I am sorry for the confusion.
