Conservation@Home-First Church of Christ, Scientist
Meet Sherry Johnson, who spearheaded the conservation efforts for First Church of Christ, Scientist in Crystal Lake. They are the first church to receive the Conservation@Home certification in McHenry County.
Sherry spent years clearing non-native buckthorn and honeysuckle and enjoys watching the native species return. The wooded area of the property has once again become a sanctuary for insects, birds, animals, and people with the incorporation of a path and sitting area. Sherry feels that Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of the church, puts it best by stating that, "All nature teaches God's love for man." Kudos to Sherry and First Church of Christ, Scientist for incorporating Conservation@Home principles into their spiritual community!
