spruces up Calhoun Park

New Berlin — Volunteers from the Rotary Club of New Berlin were to roll up their sleeves Wednesday and spread mulch, trim brush, pick up trash and perform other tasks as needed for Calhoun Park under the direction of Mark Schroeder, director of parks and recreation.

"Rotary is all about serving the community," club president Olivia Kelley said in a press release announcing the project. "We're delighted to assist Mark and his staff in sprucing up one of New Berlin's many gems."

Lake Association gives

$10K for nature preserve

Muskego — The Little Muskego Lake Association donated $10,000 toward Muskego's purchase of 100 acres of land that is being turned into a nature preserve.

The property was high on the city's priority list for preservation, containing geography ranging from wetlands to glacial hills and areas of oak savanna.

Spring-fed waters from these hills and wetlands eventually find their way into Little Muskego Lake. The city has installed a parking area off Field Drive and is clearing invasive brush and cutting in trails so the public can enjoy the area.

The association will eventually contribute a total of $50,000 toward the purchase of what is known as the Borst property. It has been named the Badertscher Preserve after Nancy Borst's father.
