Celebrate Lodi Reads Leopold with a day of family friendly activities Saturday, March 4.
Start off with a hike! Let’s take a 2-mile hike on the Lodi marsh segment of the Ice Age Trail. We’ll hike the loop trail on the west side of the marsh, hoping to hear the majestic bugling of cranes.
Meet at the Robertson Trailhead parking lot on Riddle Road starting at 9 am.
Get a jump on spring with an indoor picnic! Join us for a FREE LUNCH from 11 am to 11:45 am in the conference room at Lodi Public Library. We’ll be serving hot dogs, chips and lemonade. No ants! Come for the picnic, stay for the concert!
At noon in the library program room, we'll host a special FREE family concert by musician Ken Lonnquist. Ken and his Earthy Songs are loved by kids and adults alike. Since 1982 he’s performed as Wisconsin’s “Minstrel for the Environment,” writing fun, imaginative, meaningful songs about the natural world. Ken has performed at Aldo Leopold’s famous “shack” and based songs on chapters from “A Sand County Almanac.” His positive, witty lyrics keep audiences laughing and the intelligence of his lyrical content makes him a hit everywhere. Ken has performed in Lodi in the past and we’re glad to welcome him back for this event!
Lodi Reads Leopold is a team within the Friends of Scenic Lodi Valley and plans events each year in March to heighten awareness of Aldo Leopold and his ideas. Lodi Public Library is proud to annually serve as home to these events.
