On August 17th, wildlife advocates will join with Wisconsin small family farmers, outdoor enthusiasts and environmentally sustainable businesses.
This is a day to learn about sustainable farming, coexistence in nature and celebrate Wisconsin wildlife. The event will take place at Cain’s Orchard in the heart of the Black River Falls State Forest, where outdoor recreation opportunities and wildlife thrive, including the area’s elk herd, wolves, bears and an incredible diversity of bird and plant life!
This annual wildlife advocacy day is designed to educate and motivate wildlife and wilderness lovers on important wildlife-related issues and to encourage representatives hear about coexistence and address our need on how to best advocate for wildlife in Wisconsin.
Cain’s Orchard has a strong environmental message they wish to share with all of us who care about wildlife, that coexistence is not only possible, but vitally important. The other farms participating recognize the importance of being a conscientious caretaker of the earth, its plants, animals and their habitat. Other farms in attendance will be showcasing their products and ways that they promote wildlife and nature.
The event will also showcase businesses across Wisconsin that recognize that outdoor recreation supports, contributes to a high quality of life and—perhaps most importantly—attracts and sustains employers and families.
Wildlife Day is an opportunity to bring together and ethical hunters, non-consumptive users, scientists, silent sports enthusiasts, farmers, tribal members and anyone who truly cares about wildlife as a unified yet, diverse voice for policy at all levels of government.
Outdoor recreation is a powerful economic engine that can benefit wildlife. As a constituent, you are vital in persuading legislators that wildlife belongs to everyone and that keystone species need special consideration and protections.
So please mark your calendars, and join us for a day of fun, education and advocacy ! If you are interested in volunteering for this event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
