Potluck Picnic and Meeting at Obey Center, June 17

Our July Chapter Meeting and Potluck is being moved to Monday, June 17 at 6 p.m so we can meet the new National Park Service Superintendent of the Ice Age Trail Eric Gabriel along with Trail Manager Pam Schuler. We’ll meet at the Obey Interpretive Center at the Chippewa Moraine and enjoy the view of South Shattuck Lake from atop the ice-walled-lake-plain. 

Eric Gabriel began his assignment with the Ice Age Trail earlier this year, and has been working to get up to speed after spending most of his NPS career in the iconic western parks. He is reawakening his Wisconsin roots, however, with this assignment. Pam Schuler is no stranger to us, having managed the NPS responsibilities for the trail for many years. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the NPS role in managing the IANST. 

Bring a dish to pass, your eating utensils, and a beverage. There may be a bug or two, so plan for that as well. Please arrive prior to 6 p.m. so we can begin the potluck on schedule.

The Obey Interpretive Center is at 13394 Co Hwy M, New Auburn WI 54757. (Use this map link to be sure you don’t end up in Sand Creek!)
