Revvin’ It Up For Conservation

Our 15th anniversary was one of the most inspiring conservation events of the year. The event featured a passionate speech by Reverend Lennox Yearwood Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus.

Reverend Yearwood’s unifying message is just what we need to find common ground in a climate where policy makers make drastic cuts to our environment and some of our most cherished conservation institutions. The event also featured Milwaukee spoken word artist Kavon Cortez Jones, and included a special award ceremony honoring the work of the Simpson Street Free Press.

Thank you for your support over the past 15 years and for your role in protecting our state’s drinking water, public lands, and the Wisconsin places we love!

Spoken word artist Kavon Cortez Jones reads his poem “Lake Michigan.” Check out his Facebook page for more of his brilliant poetry. 

Thank you to our sponsors!
