What we're about

Come and join one of our education program events, walk the many trails in the 231 acre nature conservancy or volunteer on some of the many projects that we run.
Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy (KNC) provides enjoyment for not only residents of Williams Bay, Geneva Lake, and Walworth County, but also helps assure that the waters of Geneva Lake remain clean, clear, and beautiful for all future generations.
If you would like to volunteer, all are welcome, any age and no special skills are needed. Here are some of the activities: take wildlife inventory, collect seeds, weed beds, and remove invasive species. We also do a considerable amount of clearing of buckthorn and other invasive shrubs and trees. We are always looking for volunteers with chainsaw skills.

Finding Stories in Nature with Emily Stone

Barrett Memorial Library

Stories are powerful tools for engagement, learning, and relating. But we don't need to invent anything - nature has already done it for us. Scientists are busy translating. These stories can make natural phenomenon come alive for any audience! During this workshop, Emily will share some of her favorite stories and photos, including readings from her Natural Connections books. Then, through a series of props, writing, and speaking exercises, participants will have a chance to practice finding and telling the stories in nature. Please join us for an interactive, fun evening with presenter Emily Stone, author, naturalist, and Education Director at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable, WI.
