LA SALLE - University of Illinois Extension invites all current Master Gardener and Master Naturalist volunteers from Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall and Putnam counties to a “Cultivating Connections” meeting on Thursday, Nov. 18. The meeting will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. at the U of I Extension Education Center & Community Teaching Kitchen, 944 First St., LaSalle.

All Master Gardener and Master Naturalist volunteers and Extension’s 4-H staff team will meet together to connect with the 4-H coordinators in each county, discuss current programming and new plans, learn about local partnership opportunities, share ideas, and plan and schedule events for 2022.
