Our 11th Annual Education Symposium was informative and fun!  This year’s guest speakers, Dr. Dan Carter and Dr. Doug Soldat, challenged us to think about our lawns differently, showing us how to create lawns and lawn-like spaces in our landscapes that promote biodiversity and are maintained with minimal effort. Symposium attendees celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Jerry Ziegler who served on the SEWISC Board for 8 years and has diligently managed 7 TNC preserves in SE Wisconsin for more than a decade.  Everyone enjoyed local food refreshments and 12 lucky raffle winners returned home with over $810 in donated prizes!  Mark your calendars for our 12th Annual Education Symposium: November 13, 2019.
