Promotions for 2015 Coffee Conversations

Greener Oconomowoc is pleased to announce its fifth (???) annual series of Coffee Conversations on environmental issues that affect us all at personal, local and state levels.   This year’s series of four Coffee Conversations will be held each Thursday night during the month of March from 7 – 9 PM at Whelan’s Coffee and Crème, 163 E. Wisconsin Avenue in Oconomowoc.  Coffee Conversations are free of charge and open to the public.   

On March 5th, Greener Oconomowoc presents Matt Dannenberg from the League of Conservation Voters who will speak about a proposed open pit iron ore mine near Ashland, Wisconsin.  Mr. Dannenberg is an organizer for the League of Conservation Voters who informs and engages citizens in statewide environmental issues.   As a member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Mr. Dannenberg has played a role in leading his tribal members and defeating a 2012 bill for this open pit mine which is near their tribal homeland.  Mr. Dannenberg is a returning speaker from last year’s Coffee Conversations and will update us on new developments as contractors continue their quest to meet state regulations to develop a mine. 

 

On March 12th, Greener Oconomowoc focuses on Gardening.  Bruce Hinkforth, Master Gardener Volunteer and Certified Permaculture Specialist, will outline the Master Gardener program and talk about local garden projects done thru the program’s graduates.  Greener Oconomowoc will present community garden projects that they have initiated and promoted.  In addition, there will be a video of a speech on pesticides entitled The Human Body in the Modern World of Chemicals: And We Thought We Were Safe? given by John Whitcomb MD, Internal Medicine. 

 

On March 19th, Greener Oconomowoc invites Mr. Tom Steinbeck, Oconomowoc’s Wastewater Operations Manager to speak about improving Oconomowoc River’s watershed areas.  Oconomowoc is in the process of exploring an adaptive management program to improve the water quality of area lakes and rivers in the Oconomowoc River watershed.   Through this program, the city would seek to greatly reduce pollution caused by urban storm water, construction sites and agricultural practices.  Improvement of wildlife, habitat and reduction of aquatic weed growth and algal blooms are some of the program’s ultimate goals. 

 

On March 26th, Greener Oconomowoc will sponsor a volunteer from the American Red Cross who will speak about changing demands for their services and being personally prepared for emergencies.  Global climate changes and disasters have impacted the Red Cross’ internal structure and frequency of services.   This program is designed to give an update on Red Cross activities and help citizens better prepare to shelter in place or evacuate during extreme emergencies and weather.
