Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter Meeting and “Making Maple Magic Riveredge Style”
March 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
It’s the 5th season of the year – sugarin’ time! Discover how that delicious maple syrup finds its way from the forest to your breakfast plate. Riveredge Nature Center educator, Mary Holleback, will “walk” you through the sugaring process from start to finish, “Making Maple Magic Riveredge Style”.
Mary is a senior naturalist and environmental educator for Riveredge Nature Center. In that capacity, she serves as the sturgeon project director and the director of the “Testing the Waters” high school water quality monitoring program. She also teaches classes for area colleges and other miscellaneous organizations. Prior to her employment at Riveredge, she was a teacher in Hartford, WI. Mary holds a BA in conservation biology and an MS in curriculum and instruction from UWM.
Following Mary’s presentation, we will conduct our monthly Chapter meeting, which will include calendaring hikes and and trail improvement days. We have many volunteer opportunities available, including trail maintenance, trail monitoring, administration, outreach organizing, fundraising, and advocacy. If you would like to learn more about how you can get involved with the Ice Age Trail in Washington County, please feel free to join us.
There will be a short social after the meeting, to get to know some of our newer volunteers, so please bring a small snack or beverage to share.
You don’t have to be a member of the Ice Age Trail Alliance to attend our meetings. Everyone is welcome!
