Crystal Lake Green Drinks


In McHenry County, the first Wednesday of each month is Green Wednesday!

Our next gathering is May 4, 2016, from 5pm - 7pm

John Kremer, MCCD: HAVE FUN!

May 2016 - Homegrown Adventures, Vacations, and Explorations Found Under your Nose! (HAVE FUN!)
When many people think of adventure it invokes thoughts of the once-a-year grand vacations to far off destinations or trips to the family cabin a few times a summer.  However, John Kremer fills all four seasons with adventure through an active outdoor lifestyle, discovering little gems along the way which are tucked away in our local communities and nearby vicinity.

John will discuss how to augment a hike through a conservation area, bike ride on a trail, or paddle down a river with added side trips, lunch stops, and interesting history to make the day instill lasting memories. John will share some of his local favorite adventures and how he took them from conept to fun-filled explorations by finding those gems along the way. John hopes that by showing how he does it, he will encourage others to discover their own local adventures.

John Kremer is the Director of Operations & Public Safety at McHenry County Conservation District and a life long adventurer.
