Help For Pheasant Branch Conservancy

Benefit Oct. 20 at Capital Brewery

October 3, 2018

One of the most beautiful natural places in the Madison area was severely damaged by flooding, but efforts are underway to restore the Pheasant Branch Conservancy.

Officials in Middleton say it will cost as much as 4 million dollars to restore the series of trails and bridges that were used each year by thousands of walkers, runners and cyclists. The group Friends of the Pheasant Branch Conservancy have launched a fundraising effort called "Give More To Restore." Money raised will supplement any grants that could be forthcoming from the county, state or federal governments.

You can give your support at a fundraiser Oct. 20th at the Capital Brewery. The Oktoberfest event goes from 1-6 pm, with music from The Jimmy's and The Madtown Mannish Boys. All gate proceeds and a portion of beer sales will go to support the cause. More info here.

You can donate to the cause, check out drone footage of the damage and more here.
