It’s time for a brief summer update of things going on at Lac Lawrann. Our 35th Annual Wildflower Sale was a huge success. Over $27,000 was spent on Friday and Saturday, making it our highest gross sales total we’ve ever achieved. While expenses were a bit higher, due to difficulty in obtaining some plants, more than sufficient funds were raised to continue supporting our educational programming at the Conservancy. So thank you to our “potters” and many other volunteers who make this fantastic event possible. You are what make this conservancy organization work.
Lac Lawrann has also been the recipient of an Eagle Scout Project by Alexis Naumann. Alexis, a scout with Troup 6780 in West Bend, became the first female Eagle Scout in Washington County. Some of you may have had a chance to meet and talk with Alexis when she was at the Flower Sale in May to help raise funds for the project. Her project (see photo), coordinated with Courtney our naturalist, included 2 “mud kitchens”, 4 Leopold Benches and a table with 4 stump chairs for the Niche. The mud kitchens will become part of the natural playground that Courtney is developing near the Maurin Center. Television station CBS 58 in Milwaukee was at LLC on Monday to interview Alexis and her father/ Scoutmaster Steve Naumann and Courtney. We have a link to the broadcast segment below and you can also read more about it and follow links on our Facebook page
The West Bend Daily News had a great article as well if you are subscribers to that publication.
Here is the link to that article.
You will also notice on your visit, thanks to generous donors, 3 new benches are being added for you to take a moment to sit and enjoy the conservancy.
Take care and we’ll see you on the trails,
Paul De Chant
President Friends of Lac Lawrann Conservancy
