Our farm is closed for the year.  Quail and pheasants are all sold out.  
October Membership Meeting, Tues Oct. 28 at 7pm.   VFW Hall on the corner of John Nolen and Lakeside St., as usual.   Richard Wedepohl who led the restoration of Lake Belle View in Belleville will have a slide show on the work that was done.  It is a great achievement if you haven't seen the lake lately.   Also, we will be voting on a couple of changes to the bylaws and discussing a possible grant to Dane County parks for some recreational property enhancements.  

Gary Howards is in charge of the highway cleanup. He has scheduled for cleanup to be on Saturday, September 27. Volunteers are needed to help clean our section of highway 18-151. I believe that refreshments might be provided for those who help. The cleanup will begin at 8:30 a.m. and last until the last bit of highway is finished. Please contact Gary at 608-835-7938 or you can e-mail him at grhowards@gmail.com. Lets have a good turnout.

2004  DCCL Scholarship Spotlight

Barbara Heindl, received the award in 2004 as a West High (Madison) graduate. She initially attended UW-Stevens Point and then transferred to the UW-Madison where she graduated in 2009 with degrees in Wildlife Ecology (Ag School) and the Biological aspects of Conservation (L&S). She initially spent 6-months with the US Forest Service doing bird and vegetation surveys in New Mexico. She had previously done work for the USGS in Alaska and the International Crane Foundation.

For the past 3 years, she has been in Hawaii (tough job, but someone has to do it) with the Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project. See: http://kauaiforestbirds.org/  She is their head field tech and does her research in the Alakai Swamp just short of the summit of the extinct volcano. She is one of a handful of individuals who are expert on the Puaioho (Small Kauai Thrush), one of the most endangered birds on the planet.
This is a feature that the UW Ag school just did in their quarterly magazine, Grow. See: http://grow.cals.wisc.edu/environment/catch-up-with-barbara-heindl
