Urban Streams Expert to Talk at Sierra Club Meeting on November 10

Matteson, IL—(ENEWSPF)—October 30, 2014. The Sauk-Calumet Group of the Illinois Sierra Club will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, November 10, at 7:15 p.m. at the Frankfort Community Center, 140 Oak Street. PLEASE BE ADVISED: for the remainder of 2014 the meetings will NOT be held at the Frankfort Public Library but at the Frankfort Community Center.

In this month’s program, Jennifer Hammer of the Conservation Foundation will discuss the ecological restoration of our urban streams. Pollution of our streams comes not only from point sources like factories and power plants, but from streets and parking lots, and from individual water users. Ms. Hammer will show us what we can all do to help our urban streams.

The Frankfort Community Center is at 140 Oak St., a block and a half south of Nebraska, and about 5 blocks east of LaGrange Rd. From LaGrange Rd., turn east on Nebraska and drive 5 blocks to Oak St. Turn south on Oak St. to the Center.

Sierra Club meetings are free and open to the public. People who enjoy outdoor activities, who want to protect the environment, or who wish to preserve the world in which we live, are encouraged to attend.
