  • Madison Parks is aware of the boat launch navigation issues at Olbrich Park. As in previous years, they are advising boaters to use caution navigating the narrowed channel where the Starkweather Creek meets Lake Monona due to low lake levels and creek sediment.
  • The City of Madison is now accepting applicants for the first Youth Poet Laureate. With this initiative, Madison will become a member of the National Youth Poet Laureate program, which honors talented poets from ages of thirteen (13) through nineteen (19) and provides for competitive opportunities for young people to showcase their literary art on the regional and national stage.

Save the Date:

  • Fresh water is Earth's most precious resource. We all use it every day and can all have an impact on the ability to provide reliable supplies of clean water now and for future generations. On June 14 and June 21, participate in a two-session course to become a steward of our local waters.


Take care,

Regina Vidaver
