One thought on “Newsletter – May 2023

  1. Hi Kevin:Thanks so much for your wonderful coverage of events.  I always appreciate reading your insights and announcements and appreciate your hard work in helping birds by ensuring healthy habitats.  You were terrific in supporting our efforts several years ago to stop a water diversion project that would have critically impacted Pickerel Lake Fen.

    I’d like to let you and your readers know about an event this weekend, Saturday May 20 from 2 to 3:30 celebrate an environmental success story in Eagle, Wisconsin that has helped countless birds migrating as well as butterflies and other native species.  The event will take place at the Eagle Municipal Building, 820 E. Main Street, Eagle, WI 53119.

    This is a fundraiser celebrating with tours, refreshments, kids’ activities, and book sales and signing a new nonfiction book that I’ve written: Restoring Prairie, Woods, and Pond How a Small Trail Can Make a Big Difference.  This book tells how a small town in Waukesha County brought together people from many different backgrounds and political views to work together to restore three eco-systems–native prairie, woods, and an ephemeral pond–on what had once been a garbage-strewn, 8-acre municipal lot.  Since 2009, the Eagle Nature Trail and its environs has served as an outdoor classroom for Eagle Elementary and as a bird-watching, peaceful refuge for people in the community and beyond. I’m including here the link to the book trailer:

    This is a free event.  Partial proceeds from the book sale will go toward on-going projects to help with trail stewardship and improvements to help folks in wheel chairs. Please contact me if you have any questions.  Again, thanks!Laurie Lawlore-mail: laulawlor@aol.comphone: 847 702 4132website:
