The first annual Elkhorn Oktoberfest 5K Run & 2 Mile Walk was sponsored by Peoples Bank. Thank you to the 150+ walkers and runners and dogs who came to the Fairgrounds to benefit the Kettle Moraine Land Trust, Lakeland Animal Shelter, and The Elkhorn Fund. This pet friendly event was held in conjunction with Elkhorn's Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 19, 2013.
BEULAH BLUFF PRESERVE UPDATE
Kettle Moraine Land Trust is busy preparing this 8 acre hill top preserve for public use. Many volunteers are working together to take down buildings of the former home-site including various sheds and outbuildings. Whenever possible salvaged materials are being reused in construction elsewhere or recycled into new uses. Habitat for Humanity and area recycling operations are lending support for our efforts to recycle and reuse whenever possible. Access photos of this work here.
Kettle Moraine Land Trust is looking for your ideas! We are asking for help to identify important land conservation sites and environmental programs for Walworth County. Conservation efforts are more successful when people share common goals and work together. Ensuring clean water, protecting agriculture and open space, providing access to nature areas and maintaining important wildlife habitat are goals common to many communities and the Kettle Moraine Land Trust.
In order to understand local ideas and opinions about land conservation and environmental challenges, we need your help. Please complete the Advancing Conservation Survey. It will only take a few moments and your opinion matters. Survey information will be used to prioritize conservation sites, environmental education and protection programs offered by the Kettle Moraine Land Trust.
