Conservation fair to be held at local high school

Ozaukee Press Staff


Random Lake High School is holding their fourth annual Conservation Fair next week on Saturday, April 30.

The event provides educational opportunities about conservation and environmental issues in the area while also raising funds to support environmental stewardship.

This year, the event organizer and  RLHS staff member Natalie Weeks will raise funds to boost the school’s Hatchet Club as well as the American Wilderness Science Class. In these programs, students are able to go on a camping trip at the end of the school year, take a hunter safety course, learn how to hunt and dress game as well as learn about environmental stewardship and land management.

The fair will be held at the school from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is free to attend but donations are encouraged. Funds will also be raised through raffles with prizes including tickets to Summerfest or the Milwaukee Brewers or a mountain bike. RLHS Class of 2023 will also be raffling off a new dirt bike as the class fundraiser.

A member of the Schlitz Audobon Nature Center will give a presentation during the event as will other guest speakers throughout the day.

Organizations that will have booths during the event include Pheasants Forever, Between the Lakes Muskee Club, Lake Winds Elk Farm and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The groups will be touting their most recent conservation efforts and share information on how the public can be involved.

The fair will also feature community vendors that sell natural or sustainable items like local honey, hand-turned bowls and natural bath products.

There will also be activities for children and adults alike. Midwest Extreme Outdoors will have an interactive fishing experience where children can catch fish and take them home. The Wisconsin Hunter Safety Association will host a pellet rifle range where attendees can test their marksmanship in a safe environment.

Weeks, who is also a staff member at Safari Club International’s American Wilderness Leadership School, said she hopes the event is well attended by people from the surrounding communities and that they go home with at least one valuable lesson regarding conservation.
