Eagle View Group book club and program meetings are on break until September. That gives us time to concentrate on experiencing nature besides just reading and learning about our environment! Here is a list of our outdoor activities and events. So get your calendars (or phones) ready to mark these dates!
Wednesday, May 27 at 6:00 – Weed (the verb) and Wine Night. Help take care of our garden on the Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline. It’s the third garden west of the Captain’s Table which is where we will whine/wine over those weeds when we are finished!
