NHU to Participate in NE Wisconsin Food, Fiber and Energy Festival
The 7th Annual NE Wisconsin Food, Fiber and Energy Festival will be held at the Ledge View Nature Center, located south of Chilton, on Saturday, September 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The event is held as a day of education, family fun and harvest celebration by the Eastern Wisconsin Sustainable Farmers Network and the Friends of Ledge View Nature Center. The event explores the practical options available for sustainable living. New Holstein Utilities is involved in order to assist in the educational efforts of alternative energy and energy conservation. In 2010, NHU donated funds to assist in the construction of a demonstration photovoltaic (solar) energy system at the Ledge View Nature Center. Visitors can view the solar tracker and gather information on how the system works.
New Holstein Utilities staff will be on hand to discuss the use of renewable energy and to provide suggestions on how energy consumption can be reduced. NHU program information will also be available.
The Ledge View Nature Center is located at W2348 Short Road just south of Chilton between County Hwy G and State Hwy 57. The admission price is $3.00 per vehicle. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
