On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Elgin chapter of the Izaak Walton League will welcome Carol Johnson, founder of the Schaumburg Monarch Initiative, at 7 p.m. at the Hanover Township Izaak Walton Center at 899 Jay St. in Elgin. In 2016, Johnson organized a Make A Difference Day milkweed collection project for her Master Gardener class. Pat Miller, one of Monarch Watch's first Conservation Specialists, has mentored her since that first event. Frequent lunches with two garden club friends, Delores Potter and Judy Wood, led to starting, The Schaumburg Monarch Initiative, a monarch rearing and education group.
