August Meeting

Members of the McHenry Garden Club recently met and toured the McHenry County Conservation District’s Lost Valley Visitor Center. Mary Kozub, Education Outreach Coordinator, conducted a tour of the “Green” building and grounds explaining how “Green technologies” were applied throughout. Club members learned how the building and grounds were built using reclaimed lumber from existing barns, recycled material for floors, chairs, tables and office furniture, permeable pavements to allow seepage, rain gardens, native plants, low water flow fixtures, energy efficient lighting and windows and geothermal heating.
