We offer a variety of presentations suitable for adults and families. Browse the topics below or we can also tailor a presentation to the needs of your group. All presentations include a question and answer session. We can host your Zoom webinar, or we are happy to have you host as well! A suggested donation of $150 to The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is kindly requested, but not required.
