Kettle Moraine Land Trust (KMLT) will be offering a series of conservation-themed public presentations this year, “Talking About Nature.” The first lecture in the series is scheduled for Saturday, February 29, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Geneva Lake Museum, 255 Mill Street, Lake Geneva. The featured speaker will be Dr. Rich Beilfuss, President and CEO of the International Crane Foundation, headquartered in Baraboo.

“We are delighted that Dr. Beilfuss will be here to launch our series, Talking About Nature,” stated KMLT Outreach Committee Chair Peg Sorenson. “Dr. Beilfuss is an engaging speaker, thoroughly knowledgeable, and passionate about the subject matter.” Sorenson noted that the timing of the lecture is ideal, coming just days before Walworth County residents can expect to see great flocks of migrating Sandhill Cranes returning to Wisconsin to nest.
Future 2020 dates for Talking About Nature are tentatively scheduled for May 30, August 29, and November 28. Locations may vary and the lineup of specific speakers and their respective topics have yet to be announced. “Keep an eye on our website,” noted Sorenson. (www.kmlandtrust.org)
Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased on Eventbrite until February 27, or $15 per person at the door, and include refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres during a meet-and-greet session before the talk. The event is sponsored in part by Midwest Prairies, LLC.
