About This Blog


In this blog we’ll talk about  human activities that have impacts (either beneficial or harmful) on the ecosystems, plant/animal communities, and ecosystem processes of the Lake Wingra Watershed.  We’ll also look at ways in which ecological restoration provides a way to produce desirable outcomes for plant communities/ecosystems.

Restoration is hard work but just as important, restoration is fun.  It’s a great way to volunteer and to get to know your neighbors, and you can increase your plant and bird ID skills in the process.  So, we’ll shine a spotlight on those community-based restoration projects that do a good job and are a model of civic involvement.

Our blog beat includes the springs, the Lake Wingra Watershed,  storm water management, and neighborhood-based restoration projects, and other environmental activities in the watershed.
