What we offer

We meet the first Monday of every month throughout the whole year, and then 4 times a year, competition is held on the third Monday of the Month. We meet the whole year, not stopping for the summer months as some other Club will do.  View our scheduled meetings and events in our calendar or in the right side bar on our News page.     

Next Meeting: October 1st

Program: “Witness Trees and Natural History”

By Chris Gingrich of the St. Charles Park District

  • Chris will bring cultural and natural history together with a discussion of how notes from the Federal Land Survey of the early 1800s provide modern land managers with data on the pre-settlement landscape of the Chicago region.
  • In particular, he will cover the topic of witness trees chosen by surveyors as landmarks and a project to map remaining trees still living on the landscape today.
