Come Take a Hike on the Ice Age Trail

–submitted by Larry Larrabee

Luke Kloberdanz, Director and CEO of the Ice Age Trail Alliance addressed our May 17th meeting and described the purposes and workings of his organization which includes building and maintaining the trail, conservation of properties on the trail, and providing educational opportunities for school children and teens. 

The organization has 22 full time employees and 1,800 volunteers whose efforts served 10,000 4th graders this year and, in 2019, 2.3 million hikers.  The U S Congress designated the Ice Age Trail to preserve the story of glaciation and The Alliance, with the help of the National Park Foundation, is certainly fulfilling that goal here in Wisconsin.
