Trout like it clean, clear, and cold....but it's not quite that simple. Sue Beyler, a fisheries expert from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and Don Asmus of Trout Unlimited, will discuss what makes a good trout stream. They'll focus on Jericho Creek's trout habitat and will advise on how best to protect this natural resource. This free program will be held Monday, May 19 from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in the Eagle Municipal Building. It is sponsored by F.A.B.L.E. (the Friends of Alice Baker Library) , The Friends of the Mukwonago River and Trout Unlimited. Call 262-594-2800 for more information.
There are loads of Earth Day resources on the Web. There's the Environmental Protection Agency's site, sites with activities for kids, one that holds out for a different date designation, and still another government site.
If this blog were more politically oriented, I might have something to say concerning the present administration's perceived commitment to the environment in general, but this isn't, so I don't...
If you don't do any other Earth Day activity, take a moment to try the Footprint Test, and spend some time thinking about its implications.
