Conservation@Home - April Williams
Meet April Williams, one of the first C@H members! . . .
Living at her ½ acre property since 1996, April Williams is one of the first Conservation@Home certified participants in McHenry County. She received inspiration from a few local property-owners who shared their love of native plants, as well as the county’s preserved and restored natural areas. Her love of native plants expanded from the inspiration of these few people. She enjoys spending time in her yard watching the birds and butterflies. She is expanding her native plants, and hopes to add a fern garden in the future. Amazingly, she tripled the size of her original prairie planting. She advises patience, and reminds people that “the first year seeds seep, second year they creep, and by the third year they leap!”
