The Bald Eagle: The Fall and Rise of a Northwoods Icon
Minocqua Brewing Company, 238 Lakeshore Dr, Minocqua
Wednesday,September 3, 2014 6:30 pm
 
The fall season of Science on Tap kicks off on Wednesday, September 3 at 6:30PM at the Minocqua Brewing Company. Ron Eckstein, retired WDNR wildlife biologist, will discuss The Bald Eagle: The Fall & Rise of a Northwoods Icon. 

Bald eagles have made a dramatic recovery in Wisconsin over the last 30 years. This recovery occurred because of good people applying good science. Ron will discuss how people caused the eagle population to decline. And he will review how people, using science, determined the cause of the decline and subsequently developed a successful plan for their recovery.

Ron will also talk about the natural history of bald eagles and how they are specially adapted to life at the top of the food chain. He will review the distribution and abundance of the local eagle population as well as how state and federal agencies protect bald eagles. And Ron will be sure to share interesting eagle anecdotes from his 36 years as a wildlife biologist in Vilas and Oneida Counties.

 “Science on Tap-Minocqua” is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Limnology - Trout Lake Station, Kemp Natural Resources Station, the Minocqua Public Library, the Wisconsin Alumni Association – Lakeland Badger Chapter and the Minocqua Public Brewery.

With Labor Day in the rearview mirror don’t think the fun in town is over.  On Wednesday, September 11th, at 7pm, The Jimmys will be performing at the Campanile Center for the Arts.  The Jimmys are a powerhouse, eight piece band influenced by raw Chicago Blues to second line New Orleans funk.  With touring experience throughout the U.S. and Europe, The Jimmys have amassed international acclaim.  Members of the band have garnered Wisconsin’s top honors in Blues to Grammy recognition to platinum records!  “Guaranteed to make you shake a tail feather!”

This Madison based blues powerhouse comes at you with the Midwest’s finest talent with Jimmy Voegeli, WAMI Best Keyboardist for 2011, bringing his vocal and compositional talents to the forefront of the band. Supported by blues icon Perry Weber and rock and roll drumming legend Mauro Magellan, the band would seem complete but fan favorite Johnny Wartenweiler rounds out this all star rhythm section on bass.  The Jimmys’ sound comes from the horn section led by Pete Ross and Darren Sterud with Chad Whittinghill and Bryan Husk.  These four have shared stages with some of music’s biggest names from BB King to the Glenn Miller Orchestra.  You won’t want to miss them otherwise you’ll feel that “hole in your soul.”
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for student.

Join beekeeper Irv Rueger for this film and beekeeping equipment demonstration. Filmstar has labeled this “The most important documentary film since An Inconvenient Truth.” The Sunday Times calls it “a ‘bees knees’ of a film. Powerfully argued and very timely.”Honeybees have been disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives. Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing hundreds of fruits and vegetables. The film follows commercial beekeepers as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts. The film explores the struggles faced as they plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees. Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. Popcorn and drinks served. Donations appreciated.

Rump Roast Run
Minocqua Veterans Park, Minocqua
Saturday, September 27, 2014 9:00 am

The Lakeland Rotary's Annual Rump Roast Run and Walk is held the morning of the annual Beef-A-Rama Saturday, in beautiful, Minocqua WI.

Both the 5k and 10k courses begin just north of the Minocqua Veterans Park. The course hugs the shore of beautiful Lake Minocqua as participants head to the north. Both courses give way to wooded lanes and lead eventually to the Bearskin Trail, a former railroad bed. There, the 5k course turns left and brings runners & walkers over the old trestle to the finish line. 10k runners turn right and head down the Bearskin Trail before turning back to the trestle. 

A children's 1-mile race rounds out the events and an awards ceremony caps off the morning with plaques for the winners and a 16 - 18 lb beef roasts for the top male and female finishers in the 5K and 10K.

Calf Mile kids race begins at 8:15 am
5K and 10K races start at 9:00 am
