Praying Mantis Egg Sign-Up


Each spring the SPCA delivers praying mantis eggs to members on our distribution list. These eggs provide natural mosquito and pest control. If you are an SPCA member and would like us to deliver praying mantis eggs to your home for spring of 2022, sign up hereIt is required that you sign up for the 2022 delivery, even if you have already signed up in the past. The reason for this is so that people do not receive unwanted deliveries.


Earth Day Cleanup Event


The SPCA and our friend Alderman Nugent are organizing an Earth Day Cleanup Event on April 23rd. We plan to clean on Saturday morning from 9 AM until noon. Alderman Nugent’s Office will provide supplies but you are welcome to bring your own! 

Volunteers can join one of two teams. One team will meet near the underpass by the west trail on Lowell. One team will meet near the east trail by Glenlake and Keystone. 

This will be a fun community-building event. When you are done you will feel good about helping our environment. But also remember: you can pick up litter anywhere and at anytime. It is appreciated.


We hope that you choose to become involved!

Here are photos from the event!
