Community Conversations
Second Friday of Each Month

Join us for a monthly discussion on various topics.  We’ll provide tea, hot chocolate, light snacks, and discussion.  We hope these conversations serve as a way to learn, share knowledge, and grow in a communal setting.


March 15: The Importance of Winter

It’s been a strange winter for sure, but is that a bad thing? Many of us probably enjoy warmer weather from time to time, but our community and ecosystem depends on those dreaded twenty below days. Find out why from your neighbors and peers. Bring your stories about what makes winter valuable to you 

April 12: Impact of Invasive species

We’ve all seen them, heard about them, maybe even transported them by accident.  The Northwoods is home to many native plants and animals that depend on each other to survive. Unfortunately there are invaders using us as trojan horses, to infiltrate and destroy our sensitive ecosystem. Learn who these invaders are and how the community can band together to stop them  

All ages, backgrounds, and perspectives are encouraged to join. These will be in the evening, the second Friday of every month.
