      David, this should definitely be on the calendar for next year. I posted it as a discussion just before the tour, but I should've made it an event... It's a really cool weekend-long tour. I've gone to it the last two years. Really neat event. As of now, it will be the last weekend in July in 2017, though there are talks of moving it to September. I'm happy to post this as an event for next year when the dates are confirmed!

    How about : Crabtree Nature Center in Barrington Hills, IL on August 28th (9:am to 12:pm) ?
    According to their website:
    1,182 acres of woodland, wetland and prairie provides a rest stop along the migratory bird highway. 260 species have been recorded using these habitats, with at least 89 species breeding onsite. Bird watchers can stroll through the trails to view birds along the way or stop at the blind to view the hosts of waterfowl in spring and fall. In spring wildflowers carpet the woodlands. The summer brings blossoms in the meadows and prairies. Fall brings autumnal tones to the forest canopy and the native grasses. Winter brings solitude, broken by the calls of various birds visiting the grounds. An exhibit building opens to several miles of self-guiding trails, inviting visitors to explore natural habitats that are home to wildlife and native plants.

      I've been there only once ( very Beautiful)..., and I guess I could be the host.

    As someone who does not have a car, I would really like to see more events that are accessible by public transportation.

      Audrey - Please feel free to organize an event that may better accommodate you.

      Thanks. If I see something that might be a good fit, I'll take the lead in organizing an event.

    Any interest in this event?! An evening with Lynne Twist, co-founder of Pachamama Alliance. Learn lessons and wisdom of the Achuar people of the Amazon Rainforest, gain insights from their deep reverence for the environment, and learn how you can bring forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world for all. This will take place at the Bodhi Spiritual Center on October 27 from 6:30-8:30PM http://www.greenhearttransforms.org/event/envisioneers-2/

      Lauren - If you can be the meetup event host for this meetup (meet and greet people, and check off people from the meetup RSVP list) Please suggest the meetup by the end of Thursday (10/15). We would normally want to allow at least a couple weeks before the event.

      Thank you. I cannot see it on my phone now, but might check later on at home. :))

    • Lauren T.

      Hi Kamawera, I just saw your post. If you're interested in cleaning a beach in Chicagoland, feel free to look into scheduling a meetup volunteer day with The Alliance for the Great Lakes. I've volunteered with them before, they're great! Here's a link: https://www.greatlakes...­

    The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is doing a BioBlitz and Nature Fest the weekend of June 26/27. The BioBlitz starts on Friday I believe and the fest is on the 27th at St. James Farm in Warrenville. My organization will be there and the focus for booths is on conservation and citizen science. I can't really lead the meet-up but thought I'd share
