June 7, Holsum Dairy Manure Digester Tour, N6206 Elm Rd in Hilbert, WI, 9:00 - 11:30 AM. Manure digesters produce electricity from methane biogas and, when operated properly, can reduce levels of phosphorus and pathogens impacting water quality resulting from Wisconsin's increasing numbers of factory farms. However, the Sierra Club is concerned about the potential for manure digesters to be used to justify the expansion of factory farms. Recent manure digester spills have also prompted us to look into best practices that should be employed to protect our water at these facilities. Join members of Sierra Club's Wisconsin Water Sentinels to learn more about the pros and cons as we tour the Holsum Dairy Manure Digester in Hilbert, Wisconsin. RSVP today as space is limited! Up to 25 participants will be allowed on this trip. Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and bring a water bottle. For more information, contact Sierra Club Water Sentinels member Judy Hartl or call our office at (608) 256-0565 (or call 608-332-6079 if you need to reach us the day of the tour).
June 20-22, Midwest Renewable Energy Association Fair, 7558 Deer Road, Custer, Wisconsin. Register today! We hope to see you there!
July 31, Enjoy a Madison Mallards Game and Support the Sierra Club: Come one, come all to a fabulous Madison Mallards baseball game – the perfect summer family activity! The Mallards are partnering with Sierra Club for one of their Community Connection nights. Your $15 ticket gets you a seat at the game, a FREE Mallards baseball cap (a $20 value by itself), and a donation to support the Sierra Club's local conservation work. We have our own section of the stadium, so you’ll get to meet area Sierra Club members and mingle with our friends from H&H Solar Energy, who will be on hand to enjoy the game and answer any burning questions about our popular Solar Homes partnership! We may even get the rare chance to visit with the Sierra Club's Southeast Gateway Group – as our opponent will be the Kenosha Kingfish! The game starts at 7:05 pm. Please and buy your tickets today using this link, and share it with your friends: www.mallardsgroups.com, and input the password “sierra.”
