Thank you to all who joined in at a fantastic day at Dodge Preserve June 9! We had a great day, no rain, and enjoyed all the events! The event started either with a wagon ride down to the cabin or a beautiful walk on the amazing trails. Kids big and small waded into the river with Emily Endter learning the techniques to remove the invasive rusty crayfish and learn about river life. At Noon we hosted Dan Fager who began his talk about local Native American influence and history by playing an Indian Flute! We had a simple lunch and cookies from Cravings in Whitelaw, then Justin Kroening from Stone Silo Prairie talked about native perennial plants and brought some to give away. Lastly, we enjoyed a hike led by Jim Knickelbine—Executive Director of Woodland Dunes and amazing naturalist. A big thank you to Waste Management for your sponsorship as well as all who donated time and/or supplies to make this event possible and also to Carol Dodge and Rollie Olm for sharing their beautiful property with us! If you are interested in learning more about our amazing group, we’d love to have you join us! Contact Al Klingeisen with any questions, membership info, etc at (920)901-5166 or follow us on Facebook.
