Past Event on August 21, 2016:

 

Visit Crex Meadows in northern Wisconsin via professional photography produced into an audio/visual presentation at Wings Over Alma, Nature & Art Center.

 

Crex, in the National Wildlife Refuge system, is an unvisited treasure near Grantsburg, Wisconsin. Originally, this area was created when the glaciers retreated 13,000 years ago. Over the years, the land has been used in many ways. The Crex Carpet Company was the last business to utilize the land; they used the grasses in the meadows to make carpets. This was not a profitable venture. In the 1940s, the State of Wisconsin bought the tax delinquent land and established the Crex Meadows Wildlife Area.

 

Today, Crex is managed through the use of dikes and flowages for prairie and wetland restoration. The land provides habitat for Sharptail grouse and migrating birds of all kinds. In the fall of 2014, 22,000 Sandhill cranes staged there before beginning their fall migration. A Garganey duck from Russia made a 2014 surprise appearance at Crex bringing in birdwatchers from all over the United States. 

 

Carol and Jerry Knabe will present an audio/visual show consisting of images created from over 30 years of visiting Crex. The show includes flowers, mammals, birds, and the beautiful scenery found in Crex Meadows.
