The Stories behind the Sand County Almanac
Awhile ago we participated in a Badger Talk with UW Connects. Distinguished Professor Stanley Temple gave us an interesting presentation on Aldo Leopold and the stories behind The Sand County Almanac. You can watch it here if you missed it or if you just wanna see it again.
All in-person programs at the Winchester Library have been cancelled. This includes all children’s programs, adult programs, Book Club. Book Sale, Cooking demonstrations and Vilas County Elder Specialist visits. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult time. Stay well and healthy.

We went out with the staff from the DNR Trout Lake Station. We learned about electricity and microbes, fresh water sponges and why Mary lake, right here in Winchester, is one of the most unique natural lakes in Wisconsin.
