Welcome to DCCL!
Did you know that the League is the second oldest conservation group in the State of Wisconsin? If you are concerned about the future of Dane County’s natural heritage, you will want to attend the Dane County Conservation League’s 21st annual fundraiser banquet. Proceeds from the event support educational scholarships, local DNR wildlife habitat projects, purchase of trout stream bank easements, prairie chicken recovery efforts, the raising of pheasants, and the construction of Blue Bird, Wren, Wood Duck, and Bat Houses.
The November membership meeting will be at the Village Lanes in Monona on the 17th at 7p.m. The speaker will Brittany Peterson, a UW graduate researcher. She was a leader in the recent deer mortality studies done by the WDNR and the UW. Many deer were radio-collared in two areas of the state and then tracked for several years to determine the cause of death. You might be surprised to learn what the major causes of death were among the samples. This will be a great way to kick off the upcoming gun deer season by providing some great discussion points. Please come and bring a deer hunting friend. You won't regret it.
