All of us at LNRP and the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network are grieving the recent passing of long-time friend and contributor Dr. Joanne Kluessendorf, Director of the Weis Earth Science Museum in Menasha. A visitation has been scheduled for Monday, June 11 at Appleton: Further details are here; https://buff.ly/2sGchPf

Fellow scientist and friend Eric Fowle, who worked with Joanne on many NERN projects and ledge tours, shared these thoughts about the loss of his friend:

Joanne was one of the most passionate geologists that I think anyone has ever met. Her base of knowledge coupled with her love for working with children (and anyone interested in geology!) were combined in such a special way that it will undoubtedly have lasting impacts on everyone she touched. NERN is especially appreciative of her dedication to our group’s mission to build awareness for, and protect, the Niagara Escarpment within Wisconsin. Her contributions to our organization – ranging from leading “Ledge Tour” events, to educational material development, to simply being there to ‘correct’ all of us ‘non-geologists’ when we speak about the escarpment – are immeasurable. There’s not enough paper in the world for me to accurately describe her decades of work, time and effort - she will be missed greatly. NERN intends on finding some appropriate way(s) to recognize Joanne’s contributions to the organization and to the citizenry of Wisconsin. It’s the least we can do for someone who “rocked” as much as Joanne. Farewell good friend, your spirit will live on in The Ledge. – Eric

Our good friends in the Friends of Manitowoc River Watershed will be on the BIG SCREEN this week, and we're all invited!

Who is better acquainted with the beauty, history, challenges and potential of Manitowoc area rivers than our own FMRW members, who have spent hours cleaning, protecting and restoring these wonderful local resources?

We're excited to tell you that several FMRW members are featured in an upcoming episode of Discover Wisconsin, and a free screening takes place in downtown Manitowoc tomorrow (Wednesday, June 6) evening at the Manitowoc Civil Centre. "Manitowoc and Two Rivers - From Ship to Shore" will be broadcast on June 16 on Green Bay's WFRV Channel 5 or June 17 Milwaukee's WITI TV 6.

To celebrate the episode, the Manitowoc Area Visitors & Convention Bureau is hosting the public screening Wednesday night. The show begins at 6, but doors open for a meet and greet with the "actors" (including our FMRW friends!) at 5:30.

Congratulations Kim, John and everyone else involved in the the film, and thank you for all you do to protect and promote our local watershed.

Congratulations to all the wonderful tree lovers in Door County on another successful Arbor Day tree planting late last month. The Forest Recovery Project, Climate Change Coalition, Nature Conservancy and a whole lot of local school children joined forces to plant over 4,000 trees over a couple of days.

This popular annual event is supported by dozens of local businesses, educators and civic organizations. This year, the irrepressible David LaLuzerne of HerbTV was there to document it for us with this clever little video. That's LNRP board member Bob Bultman in the coveralls.

Wonderful article in the Peninsula Pulse about the first speaker at tomorrow’s climate change forum in Sturgeon Bay. Richard Beilfuss of the International Crane Foundation will tell us why cranes are the canary in the coal mine. http://doorcountypulse.com/cranes-as-a-window-on-climate-change/
