In 2014, the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Wisconsin granted a 164-acre conservation easement to Groundswell Conservancy. This easement permanently protects the landscape around the Historic Indian Agency House in Portage and is part of a larger landscape of several hundred acres of wetland conservation easements.
Don’t miss this opportunity for a guided tour of one of the oldest houses in Wisconsin, which was built in 1832. You’ll also have the chance to learn about the land on an easy 1-mile nature trail walk guided by Heidi Habeger of Groundswell Conservancy and Lynn Hanson, a retired DNR private lands specialist.
1:15 pm Half of the field trip group will tour the house for 1 hour while the other half takes the nature walk.
2:15 pm The groups switch, so everyone has an opportunity to tour the house AND walk the trail.
3:15 – 3:30 pm Refreshments and socializing.
Note: The time in our Summer Newsletter was incorrect. This event is until 3:30 pm, not 3:00 pm.
This is also a great chance to meet our new Executive Director Angela West Blank! She’d love to connect with you out on the land and learn why local conservation matters to you.
Entry to this event is free. All are welcome to attend, but space is limited. Sign up below to reserve your spot today!
