  • What is new with this Bridges Class?

    You may have been asking, how is this class different than last years?   Nancy Macgregor and I walked the river a couple of weeks ago and we set the locations for this year’s class sessions.  We will mostly be at new locations, including the Locks area on the North end and where the Yahara enters […]
