Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands
- Service Organizations
The Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands is a non-profit, grass-roots community organization committed to the protection, enhancement, and educational use of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands Community Forest.
The Friends were fortunate to be able to protect the headwaters of North Pikes Creek by securing funding that enabled the Bayfield Regional Conservancy to purchase the wetland property, which is now the Community Forest.
We encourage you to join us as a member of the Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands. Your membership dollars are used for our mission-driven activities. In 2016 we will continue our informational presentation series, assist teachers with incorporating environmental studies into their curricula, fund the purchase of materials for classroom projects at the Community Forest, display educational materials and distribute information at community events, and club and school meetings, and engage our members in volunteer efforts, such as adopt-a-road cleanup and breeding bird surveys.
Our plans also include working with the Bayfield Regional Conservancy Board to enhance the Community Forest with a parking area that will accommodate a school bus, and a handicapped accessible boardwalk that will make this community resource usable for education and recreation by visitors of all ages and physical abilities.
