Patricia Weiner - Travels in the Pantanal
Warren Park Field House, 6601 N. Western Ave., Chicago, IL
Patricia Weiner is a retired CPS teacher, photographer, naturalist, gardener and avid traveler. Patricia will be sharing stories and photos of her trip to the Pantanal which is an immense tropical wetland located mostly in Brazil. It is home to hundreds of species of birds and fauna such as jaguars, caimans and capybaras. Patricia has won numerous awards for her photographs of animals and birds. Her presentation is sure to be spectacular.
A selection of mounted photographs of Ms. Weiner's travels will also be available for sale.
One of the 90+ year old Bethany residents was noted in a recent Chicago Tribune article for her activities in growing herbs and veggies in one of the raised beds. Way to grow!
Our Community Outreach Program for 2017 has granted scholarships to 4 children to attend Warren Park Day camp. See Community Service section for photos and more information.
Bethany Retirement Home Garden
When a call was put out to help plant gardens at the Bethany Retirement Home, 4950 N. Ashland, 3 NGS members volunteered their services. Dorothy Bird and Frank and Nancy Jane Lauren helped design, obtain plants and plant the gardens in the courtyard. Their help was greatly appreciated by Bethany managers and residents.
NGS Volunteers Honored
The NGS members who gave of their time in 2016 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated.
is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.
