Wisconsin Humanities Mini-Grant Awarded

Wisconsin Humanities Mini-Grant Awarded

We are excited to announce the Friends of the Capital Springs Recreation Area has received a $2000 Mini-Grant from Wisconsin Humanities! The Friends will be partnering with the Dane County Historical Society, the Ho-Chunk Nation, and Dane County Parks. Together we will develop an interpretive plan for cultural and natural resources for the Capital Springs Recreation Area.
The Dane County Historical Society took the lead in building this partnership. The Lake Farm Archeological District sits in the heart of Lunney-Lake Farm Park and will be a major consideration during the planning process. That’s why we hired Danielle Benden, an archeological consultant, to foster the various partnerships and to write the grant application. With the grant now in hand, Danielle will coordinate the planning process.
The group has scheduled several planning sessions over the next few weeks to develop a larger plan. Hopefully, this will set us up to apply for a larger grant to implement the recommendations. Stay tuned for additional updates as this project develops.
This project supports Wisconsin Humanities’ mission to strengthen the roots of community life. #WHGrantee
