Left, a group of local women from Dane County¸ who appreciate and hike, bike, and kayak all that Mazomanie's area has to offer, came out on Earth Week to check out the trails of Walking Iron Park and to do some maintenance work. First, they decided to enjoy the day by hiking down to March Creek and to Pasque Flower Prairie. They then drove to Walking Iron Wildlife Area by Amenda Road. While exploring the area they cleaned up debris. They finished the day with lunch at Base Camp, courtesy of John Wick. Right, the former Badger Army Ammunition plant saw a new invasive species on the ground Monday April 22, Earth Day. Local hiking club regulars, State Senator Jon Erpanbach along with his entire staff, and conservation champions joined three dozen good folks of Sauk County to collect the debris from along Hwy 12. No great treasures were found but car parts along with plastic bags and bottles filled 30 bags with this past winter's accumulation. Once again Bud Light cans took first place as the most discarded item.
