FRIENDS OF THE BRANCH RIVER
Friends of the Branch River would like to invite you to our next public family event to be held Sunday, April 23rd @ 12:30 pm at the Manitowoc Public Library! We will be hosting the Fox Valley Herp Club upstairs in Balkansky Rooms B and C. This neat group will do a short presentation on reptiles and then the fun starts with lots of hands-on interaction with many snakes, turtles, and other reptiles big and small!! We will also have treats from Cravings in Whitelaw afterwards for your enjoyment! This is a FREE family event but donations are strongly encouraged to help support our group. We will also have information available for you to learn more about our group and getting involved and/or becoming a member. We are offering a summer camp scholarship to 12 – 17 year olds through Maritime Museum—Watershed Ambassadors Summer Camp! This requires a membership and some volunteer work with us. The week-long day camp is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the outdoors!
We also are offering scholarships to those who are currently enrolled in Conservation/Natural Sciences based secondary education majors. We are looking for like-minded individuals to help continue our grassroots saga in the years to come. Become a member of our group and then show proof of your enrollment, etc. and you may be a lucky recipient of up to $1,000 scholarship depending on number of applicants!
We will be ordering trees shortly and members will be granted first dibs on trees before we have our planting workday (spring date TBD based on tree shipment). We will offer planting services to members/event sponsors as well. If you have/know a high schooler in need of some community service work, please contact us for this planting project in Spring, or during our bridge crossing garbage pick-up day scheduled for Saturday, May 20 (rain date Sunday May 21 afternoon). Anyone can help us do a part in cleaning up our earth…. If you are interested in helping out contact either Al or Emily at the numbers below or send Friends of the Branch River Watershed a message on Facebook.
Brat fries will be Saturday, April 29 and Friday, June 30 @ Rob’s. Come buy a brat or burger and support a great cause!
Join us at our next meeting, April 3 @ 6:30 at Taus Town Hall.
