- History Presentation -

Jim Bokern, President of the Manitowish Waters Historical Society, made a great presentation about the History of Winchester for the Library, in lieu of his in-person presentation. It is about a hour long, but only begins to scratch the surface of Winchester's history.

- Loons on Adelaide Lake -

Licia Johnson of the North Lakeland Discovery Center gives a talk on Loons.

- Mary Lake State Nature Area -

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.

- 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.
