Step Up!

Message From Louie Vassmer, Pres, PWA:

The PWA Officer Election will be held at this month’s Pizza Party/Open House at Spring Valley Nature Center. There are openings for you to enjoyably serve your community.  We have openings for Vice President and Board-At-Large.  We need people like you to serve as Chairpersons and people for various committees.  Currently, we have openings for Population Chair, Field Trip Chair and Education Chair.  In addition, we always need people to help with our community events such as helping to build birdhouses for kids, tabling at fairs and markets, speaking to community groups, leading field trips and so on.

I am sure you care about the environment.  Some who toss their beer cans and wine bottles in the recycle bin without a thought say they are helping.  Yes, but it is kicking sand in the wind.  Only through group strength, lobbying efforts, activism and education can we really make a difference.  Please step up!  Show how much really care! 

Please, join us this month.  We will be looking for you!


We always need volunteers to help us on the Palatine Prairie.  
We appreciate your time & effort!


SUN, June 22 - 
7th ANNUAL PWA
PICNIC AT THE PRAIRIE!
Palatine Prairie, Quentin Rd & Wood St, Palatine, IL  NOON-3PM

Prairie Woods Audubon is celebrating the Palatine Prairie and with a picnic. We'll celebrate at the picnic shelter near the Woods St parking lot at Margreth Riemer Reservoir. Guided hikes of Palatine Prairie will be provided by our knowledgeable and friendly award winning stewards, Cyndi Duda and Brian Herner. Hot dogs, salads, soft drinks and chips will be provided. Prizes! New spring and summer socks. Please bring a salad, appetizer, side or dessert to pass, if you'd like. Hope to see you there! Since we are in a covered shelter, there is NO rain date. Rain or shine, we'll be there. Friends and family are invited!
FREE! If you have scopes or a telescope, feel free to bring them. We could also do some solar observation.

Join the FUN.
