The Treasures of Oz eco-tour will follow the theme “The Watershed” when it is held at six county sites from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 17. The event is intended to give people some smart planning tools to protect the watershed as well as information about what’s in the watershed, what allows water to return to the aquafir and how people can help keep the water healthy. The Cedarburg Bog and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Field Station will be open, with naturalist Kate Redmond and others available to lead tours. At Ehlers Park, representatives of the Ozaukee County Parks and Planning Department will discuss fishing opportunities and water monitoring. Harrington Beach State Park staff will show off the newest features of the park, its water resources and camping and recreational facilities. Water safety will also be part of the presentation. At Tendick Park, county staff members will show off the new prairie, as well as the kestral and bluebird nesting boxes. A watershed planning tool developed by the Mequon Partners in Preservation for the City of Mequon will be presented at Spirit Lake Nature Preserve in Mequon. At Forest Beach Migratory Preserve in the Town of Belgium, there will be dragonfly walks and information about “bug hotels” used to support pollinators. Jeanne Lord of Pineview Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will present a talk on raptors at 10:30 a.m. and Randy Hetzel will show off a variety of wild creatures. Participants will also be able to hike the preserve, climb the observation towers and view a variety of exhibits. Food, music, a silent auction and other attractions will also be part of the event.
