Chilton Progress briefs 2012
Friends group helps Ledge View

Friends of Ledge View Nature Center, Inc. is a nonprofit organization of volunteers promoting the study and appreciation of the environment through support of Ledge View Park and Nature Center.

FLVNC events fund exhibit development, educational programs and equipment, and live animal maintenance at the park. Volunteers also assist in construction projects and grounds maintenance at the park.

FLVNC was founded in 1981 by community members originally as Calumet Nature Studies to support the designation of a nature study area in Calumet County and be involved in its development for education and leisure.

FLVNC will sponsor the construction of a picnic pavilion on the park grounds in 2012.

The second annual Footloose For Health 5K Walk at Ledge View Nature Center is scheduled for Saturday, May 12 from 9 a. m. to 2 p. m., challenging families to get outdoors for fresh air and exercise at a beautiful time of year.

Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation, FLVNC can offer the 2012 Speaker Series, bringing speakers from larger metropolitan areas to Ledge View to present programs. University of Wisconsin-Madison entomologist and distinguished radio personality Phil Pellitteri was at the park Saturday, April 14 to talk about new insects in the state. The following Saturday at the same time a program on cougars will be presented. The programs are free (donations appreciated).

Dave Gramling is the current president of FLVNC. Other officers are Karl Kuhn, vice president; Pat Stenz, secretary; Jim Whittaker, treasurer; and Linda Meyer, volunteer coordinator.
