The first issue of the Sowing Seeds newsletter was written in 2006, and was distributed to members of the Wildflower Preservation and Propagation Committee (WPPC)
, people in the mentoring program of the WPPC, and a few people active in the conservation community in McHenry County, Illinois, and beyond. Several readers have suggested that I create a blog to archive older newsletters, but a better option came my way when a member of the mentoring community, Randy Suvada, offered to help me create a website. Information will now be available without scrolling through several years of newsletters. If you want to see a book suggestion or find a website, just go to “Resources”, and locate the topic that interests you. Clicking on the double arrow will exhibit the content. Please explore the website.
While this is not an official site of the WPPC, my involvement with the WPPC has been invaluable to me, and has led to my dedication to native plants and habitats. This site reflects my long-lasting relationship with the group.
If you are looking for something and can’t find it easily, don’t hesitate to contact me. The site will develop as we go along.
The following links provide information on local conservation/environmental organizations, and programs, seminars, conferences, etc. of interest to the conservation community.
