Dedication of Pleasant Valley Conservancy State Natural Area

Saturday afternoon, June 7, 2008, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and the Prairie Enthusiasts (TPE) participated in the dedication of Pleasant Valley Conservancy State Natural Area. Despite the threatening weather, over 100 people attended.

The five field trips were also well attended, but somewhat truncated by late afternoon rain storms. At that time, everyone gathered in the barn for refreshments and conversation.

It was a great day and Kathie and I appreciate all those who attended. Thanks to Evanne Hunt, President of TPE, Signe Holtz, Director of the WDNR Bureau of Endangered Resources, Rich Henderson, President of the Empire-Sauk Chapter of TPE, and Darcy Kind, WDNR, for their kind words, those who led field trips, and all those who attended.

Please return often for self-guided hikes and nature study! (Photos by Glenda Denniston)
