Welcome to Wild Ones Menomonee River Area – 2018

1st Meeting of 2018

Tuesday, January 9th, 6:30pm

Radisson Hotel

 

Our first program of 2018 features Cheryl White, PE, MS, MBA, Executive Director of the Waukesha County Land Conservancy. Did you know there are two preserves in Menomonee Falls?       Weiland Preserve and Tamarack Swamp Preserve

Please join us on Tuesday, January 9th, 6:30pm, Radisson Hotel in Menomonee Falls, to learn more about WCLC’s efforts to preserve and protect our environmentally sensitive resources in Waukesha County. We can’t take our resources for granted (or with us) so please join us for this important program.

To quote Joni Mitchell’s song “Big Yellow Taxi”: 

“They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Till it’s gone”

From the WCLC website:

“Since 1992, The Waukesha County Land Conservancy has worked quietly and efficiently at fulfilling its mission of protecting environmentally significant lands in Waukesha County. Nearly 2,900 acres of primary environmental corridor, undisturbed shoreline, pristine floating bog, uplands, woodlands and wetlands are preserved for generations to come.

The Waukesha County Land Conservancy is a land trust that is not for profit, tax-exempt, & all volunteer organization funded through memberships and other donations.

With the assistance of professional biologists, naturalists and other land professionals, the Waukesha Land Conservancy is seeking to protect the most environmentally significant remaining natural areas for the public benefit. When used in this way, the term “trust” means the resource is made permanently safe against harmful uses.”
