Tim Lewis--prairieThe public is invited to attend this year’s annual Wild Ones conference held under the circus tent in the WILD Center prairie August 14-16, 2015 in Neenah, Wisconsin.

Friday evening’s reception, August 14, features author Bill Berry who will tell conference attendees about the amazing people featured in his book Banning DDT:  How Citizen Activists in Wisconsin Led the Way.  Lorrie Otto, on whose philosophy Wild Ones was founded, was one of these amazing people.  Hear what Bill has to say about this passionate lady.

There are workshops throughout the weekend, but Saturday afternoon’s workshop, August 15, will feature Karen and Sanny Oberhauser conducting a citizen science workshop under the circus tent in the prairie.  It will be a great opportunity for everyone of all ages to learn about the many aspects of citizen science as it relates to monarch butterflies.

There are other workshops planned throughout the entire weekend along with a lot of great food.  See the agenda.   This will be the last Wild Ones Annual Conference hosted by Executive Director Donna VanBuecken.  Stop by and wish her well as she prepares to turn over the reins the next Wild Ones Executive Director.

The WILD Center is located at 2285 Butte des Morts Beach Rd in Neenah.
