Bad River Watershed Association Celebrates Ten Years Connecting People, Land and Water

The Bad River Watershed Association (BRWA) celebrates its ten year anniversary at a special event to be held on Saturday, June 23rd, 2012 at 6:00pm at Freehands Farm.

Over ten years ago a group of visionary individuals came together create the Bad River Watershed Association (BRWA), a community organization that involves citizens in taking care of and enjoying the land and water resources throughout the Bad River Watershed.  Now, past, present and future members, volunteers, and supporters are invited to celebrate at this special event.

Local food and refreshments, including a cake and ice cream social, will be served with treats from the Delta Diner, the O’Dovero Meat Market, South Shore Brewery, and more.  The celebration will also feature family games and activities, a campfire to roast hot dogs or make S’mores, the presentation of the Karen Danielsen Outstanding Stewardship Award, and live music by Andy Noyes and Stevie Matier.

Tickets are available at the event, and cost $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 3-12 (2 and under are free), or $25 per family.  Proceeds will help support BRWA’s volunteer water quality monitoring program.  Freehands Farm is located at 60445 Summit Rd, Ashland.  For questions or more information call Valerie at 715-682-2669 or visit
