Join with us on the evening of July 21st, 2019 in supporting world-class, local conservation efforts underway at Somme Woods in Northbrook, Illinois.

Socialize and enjoy dinner and refreshments from Antique Taco, Sunset Foods, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Otis & Lee Liquors and others! (Dinner and drinks included in ticket price)

Enter a raffle and bid in the silent auction to take home tickets and memberships to cultural organizations, gift certificates, original artwork and more! Contributors include local artists and artisans, Patagonia, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, The Morton Arboretum, Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Chicago River Canoe and Kayak, Uncle Dan’s, and the Northbrook Symphony!

Recently the Friends were awarded a three-to-one challenge grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation. If we can raise $7,000, the Foundation will provide another $21,000 in matching funds to support the Friends of the Forest Preserves Conservations Corps in the removal of invasive plants in Somme Woods.
