Event: The Astonishing Transformation of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant

The Astonishing Transformation of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant
Oct
18

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

Our “We Are Sauk Prairie” program series is sponsored through a grant from Alliant Energy Foundation.  The programs are free and open to the public.  Refreshments are provided.
