Thanks to the Don Bauer Family!!
The Manitowoc Unit has received a wonderful donation from the Don Bauer family in memorial. Don was an incredible member of our unit and to conservation in Manitowoc County. The club is working to identify a specific project that will do justice to the thoughtful donation.
The October meeting of the Manitowoc Unit will be a regular unit meeting and will be held on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at Lincoln Park, Cabin #1 in Manitowoc. The meeting will feature Andrew Prantl, NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative. His job is Grassroots Programs & Campaign Field Operations. He works out of the NRA office in Fairfax, Virginia. Andrew covers the state of Wisconsin. We welcome guests and youths to participate in this presentation and it is a great chance to better understand national programs.
This fall the Manitowoc Unit donated almost $900 to build a display case for an Eagle mount dating back to the 1930’s. The Eagle was originally donated to the Manitowoc Zoo by the Manitowoc Unit, and upon its passing was mounting, for educational display. We are proud to be returning this Eagle to it’s full role at the zoo. See the Video Here
Unit Description: The Manitowoc Unit is the founding unit of the Fish & Game organization. The club represents the City of Manitowoc, but has membership from individuals throughout the county overall. The club has taken on a variety of projects over the years including managing the access and aerator at Weyers Lake and funding all related costs. More recently the club took a leadership role in the redevelopment of Silver Lake on Manitowoc’s west side. The unit has also been involved in the Junior Riffle program and a number of other local projects.
Manitowoc Gun Club is also a partner member of the Manitowoc Unit and we are proud to have common members. Fall meetings are held at the newly remodeled Gun Club and we partner of fish fries and other shared events where possible.
Unit meetings are generally attended by around 30 to 40 members and guests and the meetings are always open to the public. We encourage families to attend to keep up on what is happening in the area and it is a great place to learn where the fish are biting. Meetings usually begin with a guest speaker, ranging from the local game warden to groups working on related projects in the county. This is followed by a short business meeting and then lunch and refreshments. We welcome you to join us!
