Welcome to the Cedar Creek Chapter of WWA
We are pleased to be hosting our 22nd Annual Banquet! And, once again, we've had to find a new venue for our banquet...this year we will be hosting our event at the Mequon Nature Preserve's Pieper Power Education Center. Dinner will be catered by Libby Montana Bar & Grill. We are again offering SIX individual gun/bow raffles so you'll have a better chance of winning that gun (or bow) you really want!
And, check out the BIG Inside/Outside raffle, where one winner will take home an incredible selection of indoor & outdoor tools! Plus, we are still offering a great variety of ticket packages.
WWA 2014 Calendars will also be available!
As always, we expect this year's banquet to be one of the best you will ever attend. We have put together an exciting evening with LOTS of GREAT GUNS, RAFFLES and AUCTION ITEMS! Your support is greatly appreciated! Here is a list of our local WWA and Cedar Creek Chapter highlights we're accomplishing thanks to our banquet attendees:
- Krier Project Site: WWA is assisting in a several acre wetlands restoration at the Krier property in the Town of Belgium, with a goal to create three wetland plant communities: shallow marsh, sedge meadow and wet meadow
- Mequon Project Site: Little Mequon River is a 60 acre wetland/strem and grassland project done in cooperation with MMSD, FWS and DNR. WWA helped to design and facilitate the wetland restoration work along the stream in what were agricultural fields. We removed drain tile, excavated scrapes and removed large amounts of sediment. This project will aid in water quality within the stream by reducing point source discharge and the restored wetlands will help collect and filter the water prior to it going into the stream. The floodplain will function and interact with the stream better and more consistently and the the area, once all agricultural fields, now provide some open water habitat and native grasslands. The surrounding grasslands we planted this spring will provide excellent nesting habitat for waterfowl in the area.
- Port Washington Site: WWA, in partnership with Ozaukee Conservation Dept. and FWS completed a 6 acre project near Port Washington. A network of drain tile was removed and made inoperable restoring a series of wetland basins in a former agricultural field. The surrounding land was planted into grassland, providing additional habitat and protection to the newly restored site. The grasslands help filter water and hold soil in place to prevent it from eroding into and filling the wetland basins over time.
- WWA also continues to provide assistance in technical expertise to the Mequon Nature Preserve on an ongoing basis as they continue to strive toward their goals to restore the natural habitat at that site. WWA has been listed as a major in-kind contributor to the MNP at the Pieper Power Education Center.
