ZAC’s 2018 Fall Arbor Day is almost upon us! This is but our first step in a long-term plan to beautify our ZAC grounds for our members. The interest in this event has been fantastic and we are looking forward to a fun and exciting day of environmental and community service!
We need all the assistance we can get to make this a successful event – whether it’s digging, planting, mulching, or keeping our on-field volunteers well-fed and refreshed, we could really use your help. If you have not already done so, please RSVP Persis Driver (email or 630-453-7837) or Zenobia Damania (email or 630-697-8947) as soon as possible.
We would also be grateful for any donations or contributions to help offset the planting and landscaping costs. If you’d like to donate to the event, you may do so by clicking on the button below, or in-person on the day of the event.

Please note: We have received several requests for sponsoring trees in memoriam. Unfortunately, we still have considerable debris on our grounds that needs to be cleared before we can identify and allocate plots for them. We are going to defer the sponsorship and planting of trees until Spring next year, when we will be in a better position to have a thorough landscape design.
We will instead focus our time and energy on planting a selection of bushes, shrubs, hedges, and several other small annuals and planters in key locations around our property, carefully curated to bloom from Spring through Summer. Please read on to see what we will be planting.
