Wisconsin Sierra Club’s annual Autumn Assembly – a success!
A warm and resounding THANK YOU to all of you who attended our Autumn Assembly this past weekend. The Great Waters Group was pleased to co-host the event for SC members throughout the state.
AND a grateful THANK YOU to all of you who volunteered to fill all those tasks that made the weekend a huge success!
Many of our members from around the state enjoyed our tour of Johnson Controls International’s Glendale Facility, the hike at Engel Conservation Area in Muskego, paddling on Phantom Lake, and the tour of Lulu Lake with a Nature Conservatory leader.
In addition to awards, an (indoor) campfire jam session, and a silent auction, the event also included presentations and talks about Waukesha's proposed Great Lakes water diversion, white nose syndrome and Wisconsin bats, tar sands threats to the Great Lakes, renewable energy, expanding transit, Penokee Hills geology, frac-sand mining, and dvd showings of "Wisconsin's Mining Standoff" and "Bag It."
About one hundred Sierra Club members enjoyed the weekend’s activities. Next year’s Autumn Assembly will be hosted by the Four Lakes Group and will happen somewhere in the Madison area – details later.
