Educational Activities

 

EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES                                                                                 

Swamp MilkweedThe Wildflower Festival was added to Covered Bridge Days in 2011 to raise awareness and promote enjoyment of the many native plantings that have been installed around Brodhead in the past several years.  Planting native species is very important to the environment not only for the beauty they provide, but also for their value in preventing rainwater run-off and attracting beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies.

 Various activities have taken place during this Festival, including interactive tours of native plantings around the Brodhead schools, the Brodhead Public Library, and the UCC church. Visits to the pond at the library, feeding the spiders, scavenger hunts, and other fun activities for all ages have been presented.

                                                                                  The 2016 Wildflower Festival will feature "Wildflowers of Putnam Park," a tour of native plantings for all ages at 10:30 on Sunday morning, August 14, in Putnam Park, part of the Pearl Island Recreational Corridor project.  Environmentalist extraordinaire, Paul Roemer, will lead this interesting exploration.  

Library flowers  AT ANY TIME, any day, you can take a relaxing walk through theCardinal Flower native prairie at the Congregational UCC, E201 23rd Street. Trails through ten acres of native Wisconsin prairie, restored by Applied Ecological Services of Brodhead, await your arrival.  The perimeter trail is about one-third of a mile, and peak of color is between mid-June and early August.  Visitors may park in the church lot and walk north past the memorial bell to the beginning of the trail.  There is no fee.
