Scholarship: 
 

Congratulations to Jenna Springer from Florence, winner of our 2020 scholarship. Jenna maintained a 4.0 and was Valedictorian of her class. She will be attending the University of Wisconsin – Platteville to pursue a degree in the field of natural resources. Jenna says that it is her hope to return to northern Wisconsin to work on improving and sustaining our beautiful Northwoods. Congratulations, Jenna, and best of luck to you! 

Snow Tubing:

Saturday February 22, 2020 was a wonderful day for some fun in the snow! There were 39 kids that attended the snow tubing event, and a hot dog lunch was provided. Everyone was excited to get out for some fresh air and enjoy the awesome Northwoods weather! 

 

Youth Pheasant Hunt: 

A cool and soggy day at Howard Reed’s Shady Game awaited fifteen youth and many volunteers on Saturday, October 5th 2019 as KAMO Northwoods held their annual pheasant shoot. We were blessed with three fine dogs this year along with participation from the 4H group in Iron Mountain, who are hoping to start a group in Florence this coming year. Brian from 906 Outdoors filmed the event , which aired on  Discovering the week of October 14th (see video below, KAMO portion starts at minute 17:27). A special treat this year was homemade elk chili provided by Matthew and John Johnson. Clays, ammo, birds, knit hats, lunch and more ammo were all provided at this free annual event. Thanks for all those who helped make this a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the fall season! 

 

 

Senior Outing: 

Saturday, September 7th 2019 the Northwoods KAMO chapter treated seniors from the Golden Living Center in Florence to a day of fishing at Fisher Lake. This year marked the 4th year of the event, and eight seniors were able to participate. We were very fortunate for great weather, fresh air and lots of fun!

Thanks to Bobbie Samme’ for the wonderful article and pictures in the Florence Mining News capturing the event!

Hooked on Fishing:  

On July 13th 2019, a beautiful day awaited a great group of children, volunteers, parents, and guardians for the annual Kids Hooked on Fishing outing at Lake Emily. 

The grounds were manicured, the fish cooperated, and the mosquitoes took the day off. A highlight of the event involved making discarded fishing line containers to be placed at local county boat landings to recycle fishing line and keep it out of the the waters.

A special thank you to Whistlers Outdoors for donating the bait, the Land Conservation Dept for their goodies, our financial supporters, and the fleet of boat captains from Lake Emily who take everyone out fishing. Thank you all for making it a great day!
