Covid-19 updates from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Here is a link to the website of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. It includes Covid-19 data by county, and a map that is updated daily. Follow these links to the Iron County Public Health Department, and the Vilas County Public Health Department for more local information. And here is an article that appeared last night on NPR’s website projecting when each state is expected to “peak;” it is just a prediction, and it will probably change over time, but I thought it was interesting.

Social distancing seems to be working – stay safe, everyone!

Conservation on Tap and the spring LOFA board meeting

Here is the schedule for this year’s Conservation on Tap programs, sponsored by the Iron County Land and Waters Conservation Department, the Iron County Lakes and Rivers Alliance, and hosted by The Pines restaurant. These are always interesting programs!

LOFA-sponsored “Ted Talk” coming soon!

LOFA Board president Jan Tesch has done a great job arranging and promoting this upcoming presentation by local author Ted Rulseh, scheduled for May 18 at the Mercer Community Center. Thanks, Jan! This will be a great way to learn more about the lakes we love.

Here’s  a printable version of the poster for you to hang on your refrigerator or give to your friends.
