Flower Header

Enjoy the natural gifts of early Summer by joining retired DNR wildflower/wildlife expert Elward Engle for a nature walk on Saturday June 6th. This walk is open to the public and participants should meet at 12:30pm in the west parking lot of the World War 2 Museum. From there a carpool will form and walkers will drive towards the Mecan Springs area of the Ice Age Trail.  Along with wildflower and wildlife identification, topics discussed will include Native American History, geology, and the history of the Springs itself (water so pure the Perrier Water Company at one time wanted to bottle it).  Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity, even despite the ticks. Engle does encourage people to be aware of ticks and suggests that hikers wear light clothes and tuck socks over pants and pants into boots. By using simple measures, the beauty of the outdoors can still be enjoyed. Those interested should call or stop by the Wautoma Library to sign-up. Registration is strongly encouraged in case the event runs into foul weather and must be rescheduled
