Land & Lake Family Field Day

Land & Lake Family Field Day

AUGUST 17, 2019 10 am-2 pm

 

Landowners in the Green Lake area have a lot to be proud of. That is what a multi-organizational group representing farmers, shoreline owners and the public plans to highlight at the Land & Lake Family Field Day on Saturday, August 17 in Markesan, Wisconsin.

The Land & Lake Family Field Day is a free event to showcase these practices to a broad audience – for farmers and landowners to consider on their own property, or for the public to gain a deeper appreciation for what is being done to improve soil and downstream water resources.

Attendees will hear multi-generational farmers speak about how conservation practices have helped them to overcome challenges. Attendees will also see how farm equipment has changed over the years and corresponding managed field plots, as well as a rainfall simulator showing how soil samples from these plots differ in infiltration rates.

The event will also have free lunch, a band in the barn, children’s activities and vendor/educational booths offering information on everything from cover crops to lawn management.

The Land and Lake Family Field Day is on Saturday, August 17th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM at the Dukelow Farm, W2026 County Rd B Markesan, WI 53946.

Event is FREE and open to the public but attendees are encouraged to RSVP by calling the Green Lake Association at (920) 294-6480 or by email at Jennifer@greenlakeassociation.com
