Be the change you want to see in the world!

World Water Day - Be the change.  Every Drop Counts.

This World Water Day 2023 is all about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis.  It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to unite around water and accelerate progress together. Make a commitment to “be the change” and it will be added to the larger-scale commitments from governments, companies, organizations, institutions and coalitions.

Together, these promises will form the Water Action Agenda, to be launched at the UN 2023 Water Conference (22-24 March) – the first event of its kind for nearly 50 years.

Last Conservation on Tap presentation of the season!  Our April 4, 2023 Conservation on Tap presentation will take place on Tuesday, March 7, at 7:00 pm, at Tangled Hickory, 120 S. Main St., Viroqua (NEW VENUE).  Conservation on Tap is a FREE presentation series by experts on various aspects of Driftless area ecology and conservation. The goal of the series is to increase knowledge, connection to, and awareness of current conservation efforts and research.

TitleFrom Catbirds to Cuckoos – The Importance of North America’s Driftless Area for Global Bird Conservation

Description:  The Driftless Area harbors the largest expanse of forest between the Ozarks and Canada’s vast boreal biome. The region’s oak woodlands support an important population of migratory birds, many considered conservation priorities. The Driftless also provides critically important stopover habitat for millions of birds during spring and fall migration.

This presentation will examine features that contribute to the region’s importance for birds, provide a glimpse into ongoing bird conservation efforts, and highlight actions Driftless residents can take to lend our feathered friends a helping hand.

Craig lives near Onalaska, on Wisconsin’s west coast, with his wife, Mary, two mischievous dogs, and a yard full of cool birds.

Please feel free to order food and drink at Tangled Hickory before and during the presentation.
