Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter Meeting
November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Rob Wessberg, Superintendent of the Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine Forest, will be our featured speaker. A popular destination, Wessberg says, is to hike up the 1,350–foot Powder Hill kame that offers an elevated view from a 65–foot tower of the glacial landscape and heart-shaped Pike Lake, along with a breath–taking look at the Holy Hill Basilica, which was also built on a kame.
Located about half an hour from downtown Milwaukee, the Pike Lake Unit offers a wide variety of opportunities for year–round recreation and for urban families to connect with nature.
Pike Lake, a deep water lake left when the glaciers receded, is the main attraction during the summer months. At 45 feet deep, the 446–acre lake is the only natural reproducing walleye lake in the region and features a variety of game fish such as northern pike, perch, bluegill and largemouth bass.
