Celebrate EARTH DAY with us and learn about all the green options available to us right here in Sauk County! There will be exhibits, vendors, mini-workshops, and plenty of kids activities! We’ll also have author Elise Mosser who wrote about Millie Zantow; a Sauk County local who helped create the recycling standards we have today. There will be food available and HCE’s homemade pies! The Sauk County Art Association is also sponsoring Encore!!Art – where others see trash, artists see an opportunity to reassemble, renew, and repurpose. Check out the Bats and Beverage event the Friday before the Celebration! We’ll meet at the Flood Zone Bar and Grill in Rock Springs, then use some “high-tech” bat gear to search for bats along the river.
