Thank you to everyone who came out to my budget listening sessions on Saturday. I enjoyed listening to your thoughts and concerns about the Governor’s proposed budget and what we can do in the state legislature to pass a budget which helps everyone in the 3rd Assembly District. If you were unable to attend, but would like to share your thoughts and ideas, please fill out my budget survey online at http://legis.wisconsin.gov/…/t…/2019-21-state-budget-survey/

 Thank you from Frontida 

This weekend, Terri Jochmann from Frontida Assisted Living in Kimberly surprised me with this huge thank you card after workers there received an additional bonus on their paychecks due to a nursing home reimbursement increase in the 2017-19 state budget. These are very hardworking people that take care of so many who have contributed to society all their lives and now need assistance. Thank you for all you do and keep up the great work!

 2019 Spring Turkey Hunt 

The 2019 Spring Turkey season kicked off this week. Good luck hunters as the 2019 Spring Turkey Hunt begins! Be safe and feel free to share photos of your successful hunt! 

The wild turkey is truly one of Wisconsin's wildlife management success stories. A key role in the success of the wild turkey management program can be attributed to hunters through their purchase of the Wild Turkey Stamp which provides vital financial support in providing for future opportunities for turkey management and hunting in Wisconsin. Since wild turkeys were first successfully reintroduced into Wisconsin in 1976, population levels continue to increase and expand statewide. Successful restoration of the wild turkey resulted from tremendous hunter and landowner support, good survival and high quality habitat.

The DNR reminds hunters to register their harvested turkey by 5 p.m. the day after recovery. More information, including how to register your turkey, can be found by clicking here or on the image below.

Earth Day is on Monday! 

Earth Day 2019 is on Monday, April 22nd. To help celebrate, the Sierra Club Fox Valley Group invites you to "Loop the Lake" around part of Little Lake Butte Des Morts in Menasha. This community event will begin and end at the Arrowhead Park.

Local organizations and volunteers to partner to "Sound the Alarm" on fire safety

Sound the Alarm brings together local fire safety organizations, fire departments, and volunteers to canvass neighborhoods, educating residents about fire safety.

The local Red Cross has set ambitious goals for the 2019 Fox Cities Sound the Alarm campaign. They aim to install 1,750 smoke alarms, reach 80 households, and engage 500 volunteers. To accomplish this, they need the help of the community. Please consider lending a hand at our local Sound the Alarm event on Saturday, May 4th from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Volunteers can sign up on the American Red Cross website

 

If you need a smoke alarm, you can sign up to have one installed at no charge before the event occurs. Go to this page on the American Red Cross website and fill out the form, or text ALARM to 844-811-0100 and follow the prompts. Someone will get in touch with you to set up an appointment to install a smoke alarm.

 

The American Red Cross began its Sound the Alarm campaign in 2014 with the goal to reduce the number of fire related deaths and injuries across the nation. On average, seven people die and 36 are injured in home fires every single day. The majority of these deaths occur because the homes are not equipped with working smoke alarms. Having working smoke alarms in a home can reduce the risk of fire-related death by 50%.

The organizations and volunteers will install new smoke alarms or replace batteries in existing alarms to ensure homes are properly equipped. To date this program has installed over 1.6 million smoke alarms and their education efforts have reached over 670,000 households.

If you have any questions about the "Sound the Alarm" program, please contact Appleton Communications Coordinator Chad Doran at (920) 832-5814 or chad.doran@appleton.org

New Way to Track Management Activities on State Lands
  • DNR recently announced the rollout of an online tool to help the public track management activities on state lands.  The Annual Property Implementation Plans (APIP) tool allows users to identify forestry and habitat work, as well as infrastructure improvement and the development of recreational opportunities on specific DNR properties.
