- Lunch and Learn: Why Native Plants? Which native plants absorb the most stormwater? Which are best for songbirds and caterpillars? Which feed the most wildlife? Bring your questions about native plants to Leslie Shad and Allison Sloan of Natural Habitat Evanston. April 8, 12 p.m. Register.
- Resources Matter: Ways to Prevent Waste and Recycle Right: Join Mary Allen, Recycling and Education Director at the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County, as she helps us understand and master the 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

- Lunch & Learn: Deconstruction, The Sustainable Choice: Deconstruction is the selective dismantling of building components for reuse, repurposing, recycling, and waste management — different from demolition.
