This Month's Program

WEDNESDAY, MAY 22

10:00 am at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva

PAM OTTO, NATURALIST

THE CICADAS ARE COMING! 

Now that the weather has warmed up, we’re following the tradition we have established over the years of meeting outdoors when it’s appropriate for activities we have planned.  Our May 22 meeting will be at Fabyan Forest Preserve in Geneva (directions below) off Route 31 about a mile north of our usual venue at the Batavia Public Library.

A two-part gathering is on the schedule for this gathering. To begin, we're excited to have a visit from Pam Otto, Naturalist with the St. Charles Park District, who will tell us what to expect from the cicada invasion that's about to begin in our area. Pam has been with us a few times in the past to talk about natural phenomena, an she is always delightfully informative. She might even lead a short walk-around for those who want to take one.

After our cicada-fest, we thought it would be fun to kick off the season with a picnic lunch. We will provide the makings for sandwiches, plus chips and beverages. If a few of you would like to bring a salad or dessert, that would be great - but please let Barbara know so we don't end up with duplicates or more than we need.

Now as for directions: Plan to enter Fabyan Forest Preserve from the first right turn off Route 31 north of the light at Fabyan Parkway. We have reserved Shelter 1, the same large shelter we had last year, about halfway between the parking lot and the Japanese Garden, close to parking and restrooms. This link may help:

One of us will be there when you arrive to direct you if you need help. And our Memory Cafe sign will be on display nearby - a clue that you're in the right place.

As always, please let Barbara know by next Monday, May 19, whether or not you are coming. It helps us so much to know the number of people we will have each month so we can plan properly. 

We're looking forward to seeing you next Wednesday!
