Creative Conservation Allies – Tuesday, December 19
Wisconsin’s businesses are collaborating with the public sector to pursue environmental conservation initiatives, and we want to know more about it! What does this kind of partnership look like? Are we (businesses, conservation professionals, non-profits and agencies) successfully leveraging these opportunities in our state?
Join us and Sustain Dane on Tuesday, December 19 at 7:00pm in Union South on the UW-Madison campus to hear from a panel of local business leaders whose companies are involved in conservation. Dr. Brent Haglund, Chief Scientific Officer at the Sand County Foundation, will lead a two-way conversation with the audience and business leaders to explore successful public-private partnerships in Wisconsin.
Conservation On Tap – November
This Month’s Conservation On Tap is hosted at Rockhound Brewing! If you haven’t been to this relatively new east side brewery (and especially if you’re a geology nerd) you’ll love the atmosphere.
Join us Thursday at 5:00pm, at Rockhound Brewery for the #ConservationBuzz. We’ll be chatting about the new conservation organization, Green Fire. If you’re potentially interested in joining, WSCB will supply and submit Green Fire Membership Forms at Conservation On Tap (membership ranges from $25 for students to $40 for professionals).
Conservation On Tap – October
This Month’s Conservation On Tap features the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association! Executive Director, Wade Moder, will kick off Conservation On Tap with an introduction to Upper Sugar River Watershed Association and the state of waterway conservation in southern Wisconsin. Join the #ConservationBuzz on Thursday, October 19th at One Barrel Brewing! We’ll chat about invasive species, farmers’ best practices, the reality of citizen science and more!
Movie Night in the Park
September’s WSCB social is a movie night at Tenny Park featuring the Ken Burns documentary, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea. Just us for some food and a flick!
WSCB Restoration Work Day
Saturday, August 26th, 9:00am-Noon
Join WSCB as we assist the Upper Sugar River Watershed Association (USRWA) to restore the Sugar River Wetlands State Natural Area. Volunteers will help remove invasives and treat them with herbicide, collect prairie seeds, and girdle aspen trees. No experience necessary, nor tools, but please bring gloves if you have them.
Joining in restoration work days is a great way to learn about conservation efforts and give back to the State Natural Areas. Meet at Epic Lane in Verona. View the map and RSVP on the Facebook event page.
