“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ~Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

"CAFOs are only profitable because so much of the cost and damage is externalized onto the environment, neighbors and wildlife. The monitoring, supervision, clean-up, restitution, fines are not happening, thus the true cost of CAFOs never find the way onto the balance books." Talking point from the CAFO Conference.

“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.”
~Aldo Leopold, 1948. A Sand County Almanac.

Birds, Plants and Animals of Forests Prairies and Savannahs

Please mark your calendars for Thursday March 19th and join Craig Thompson and Armund Bartz, both DNR Endangered Resources experts to learn more about our great Spring awakening. With birds arriving back from their wintering grounds, and the critters and plants of our savannahs and prairies soon in their most active time of year, the depth of knowledge and enthusiasm of these 2 experts will add to your enjoyment and understanding of our area.

Every year tens of millions of birds from North America migrate to Central and South America to spend the winter. The challenges they face on their beleaguered wintering grounds are significant and growing.  If we want to make sure our beloved birds  - Baltimore Orioles, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Indigo Buntings, Wood Thrushes and warblers -  return to serenade us every Spring, we need to ensure important wintering grounds in Latin America are protected. Learn how you can help support Wisconsin's innovative international efforts to protect our migratory birds.

Join us at 7PM, in the Community Room of Vernon Memorial Hospital Medical Office Building (lower level), 507 S Main Street, Viroqua. Refreshments and social time immediately following the presentation. Sponsored by Kickapoo Initiative, Valley Stewardship Network and Crawford Stewardship Project.
