October Alliance Events
This month we have a Volunteer Stewardship Day at Badger scheduled for Saturday, October 13th followed by our monthly “We Are Sauk Prairie” presentation on Thursday, October 18th. Join us for one or both events! Details follow.
Volunteer Stewardship Day. The field season is winding down, but we still have work to do at the Hillside Prairie at Badger. Join us for a morning of volunteer restoration of the last remnant of native prairie on state-managed land at Badger. We’ll provide work gloves, tools and refreshments.
When: Saturday, October 13, 9:00am to 12:00pm
Where: Meet at the entrance to the Badger Museum along Highway 12 between Sauk City and Baraboo. The Badger entrance is across the highway from the Citgo Station. Park inside the fence on the right, next to the Badger Museum.
Wear clothing appropriate for the weather–layers suggested– including long pants, good shoes or boots (the site may be slippery), and a hat if desired.
“The Astonishing Transformation of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant, 1997-2018″ is the title of our October program in the monthly “We Are Sauk Prairie” series. Whereas we generally invite speakers from outside the organization, this month we’ll provide the program ourselves. Alliance director Charlie Luthin will share a few introductory remarks before showing the Alliance’s new documentary video, “Restoring the Sauk Prairie, A Story of Hope and Healing,” an important overview of the 20-year effort by area citizens to promote a “green vision” at Badger, leading to the state’s newest state park, the Sauk prairie State Recreation Area.
When: Thursday, October 18, 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Where: Ruth Culver Community Library, 540 Water Street, Prairie du Sac
The “We Are Sauk Prairie” programs are free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.
The “We Are Sauk Prairie” program series is sponsored by Alliant Energy Foundation.
