Apologies for Cross-posting

A Greeting from the Milwaukee Chapter of Audubon

Dear Friend of Wisconsin:

We are asking for a few minutes of your time.

Can you take a short moment and help fellow conservationists to spread this message to business people, clients, lists & newsletters and friends - really, anyone who would enjoy a gathering of the finest native plant landscapers, natural heritage specialists and land restorationists found in Wisconsin & the Midwest? 


Steve Mahler, President
Milwaukee Audubon Society

" Explore how to bring a 'Sense of Our Wisconsin's Natural Legacy' into your own backyard and discover some of the current methods for  protecting southeastern Wisconsin’s threatened natural heritage."

That’s the central message of this year’s Natural Landscapes Conference hosted for the 25th year on Saturday February 12, 2005, by the Milwaukee Audubon Society.  A diversity of exceptional programs can be selected from among four central themes: 

            * Landscaping with Native Plants
            * Threatened Natural Areas of Southeastern Wisconsin
            * Threats from Invasive Species
            * Our Cultural Heritage in the Landscape. 

Conference-goers will hear from wildlife & endangered resources biologists, natural areas restorationists & ecologists, Native American & conservation authors and even a former state archeologist.

A keynote presentation will address the sometimes - controversial idea of "Conservation Subdivisions ", a land development concept which holds both promise and peril. Using fascinating stories of recent Wisconsin conservation land developments, our keynote will distinguish those wholesome features from the all-too-often deceptive and fictional claims made by some developers.

Note the address change for this year’s conference; it will be presented at the Milwaukee Area Technical College’s North Campus, located at 5555 West Highland Road, Mequon, WI., 53092.  Parking is free.  $25 Pre-registration before February 8th; $35 after 2/8/05 and at the door.
