This year to celebrate the 15th Annual Earth Day event in Sauk County, we are planning on having an Earth Week with various work projects and events from Saturday, April 19, 2014 and culminating with the Earth Day event at UW Baraboo/Sauk County Campus on Sunday, April 27, 2014. Therefore, I am contacting many businesses, organizations, schools and local governments to see if you would come up with an idea and facilitate the organizing of it.
Sauk County Conservation, Planning, and Zoning and the Sauk County UW Extension Office will be putting out promotional materials advertising these work projects and events in advance of Earth Week; we would very much like to be able to put your contact information on the promotional materials in order to connect willing volunteers with your organization. If you have a work project or event that you would like promoted on these materials, please contact Lynn Zick at 608-355-3250 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the projects that have been done previously are: planting trees, pulling invasives, highway cleanup, movies, etc. This year we would also like to include events such as hikes and tours, possibly a 5K Walk/Run event, or any other event that you can think of to get adults and children outdoors. We would need to have the time frame that you anticipate the project/event to last, i.e. 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM, 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, etc. As I mentioned before, we would need the contact information for the person that volunteers should connect with if they plan on participating in your project. Additionally, if you have an RSVP date that you want volunteers to contact you by, such as April 8th, I will need to know that as well.
The absolute last date that I need to have the above information is March 10, 2014; sooner would be great. The earlier that we can get the word out in our communities, the better chance we have for volunteer participation to make your event a success and more participation from the general public!
Due to the nasty, cold weather (it snowed all morning long), area children were forced to go indoors during Earth Day at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County where they found–cupcakes! Unfortunately, these lonely little cupcakes, totally missing their decorations, are all that remains of the large group that arrived earlier in the day.
Fortunately, there were folks around that could help the children finish the cupcakes off before they REALLY finished the cupcake off!
Did you get your slice?
The HCE Folks did a great job of bringing in lots of different pies for Sunday morning. Good thing they’re in there early–the volunteers get first choice
Come see us next year, good eats, good art, good fun!
