Wednesday, July 12, the Ferryville Tourism Council is sponsoring the second of this summer’s evening bonfire programs in Ferryville’s Sugar Creek Park at 8 p.m. The event will be held under the pavilion at the south end of the park just off of Wisconsin Highway 35, the Great River Road.

The program is “From Weeds to Wild Flowers on Gobbler Ridge” and will be given by Tim Eisele, a writer from Madison, WI. He and his wife, Linda, have restored a large section of their land in Crawford County, WI from regular land to native prairie. The resulting prairie is an attraction for birds, insects and animals that are native to the area. Eisele will use multi-media to show the process he and his wife went through during this years long process.

Attendees are asked to bring lawn chairs and bug spray.

For more information, call Joanne White at 608-734-9018. Area residents are also reminded to mark their calendars also for the third program in this summer’s series. August 9 at 8 p.m. presenter Bob O’Connor will be speaking about Harriet Lane, the first “First Lady” of the White House.
