Our October “We Are Sauk Prairie” program focuses on the 20-year transformation of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant from a military industrial complex into a green space, thanks to the efforts of a dedicated group of citizens that promoted a “green vision” following the Army’s announcement in 1997 that the Plant was to be decommissioned.
Charlie Luthin, Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance’s director, will offer a short introduction followed by the Alliance’s new 26-minute video documentary, “Restoring the Sauk Prairie, A Story of Hope and Healing,” that tells the story of transformation at Badger through the voices of a diversity of individuals from the community, from the Ho-Chunk Nation and from among elected officials.
When: Thursday, October 18, 6:30pm
Where: Ruth Culver Community Library, 540 Water Street, Prairie du Sac
