Charlie Luthin speaks to Sauk Prairie Optimist Club

Charlie Luthin speaks to Optimist Club


On March 28th, Charlie Luthin, Executive Director of the Sauk Prairie Conservation Alliance, spoke about the Badger Lands (the Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area)- its history, struggles, progress and future. The mission of the Alliance, a regional non-profit organization, is to promote cooperative conversation on the Badger Lands (the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant) and the surrounding Sauk Prairie landscape.  It supports ecological restoration, public education, research and quiet nature-based recreation on the Badger Lands.  The Badger Lands are currently divided between the Ho-Chunk Nation, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the USDA Dairy Forage Resource Center, the Bluffview Sanitary District and the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.  The Alliance has created a Visitor Guide to the Badger Lands, a map of 22 points of  historical, geologic and natural interest on the Lands.  Coming soon will be the mobile Badger App that will interpret and provide GPS locations for the points of interest and trails.  The Alliance sponsors work days at Badger as well as a lecture series in the Spring and Fall.  There will be a lecture at the Ruth Culver Community Library on April 19th from 6:30-8 PM on the Dwindling Monarch Butterfly.


The Optimist Club of Sauk Prairie meets on Wednesdays at 7 a.m. (noon the first Wednesday of the month) in the River Room of the Blue Spoon.  New members and visitors are always welcome!
