Wanted: Photos and stories of the Kemp Natural Resources Station

HomeWinter07Half a century ago, Susan Spencer-Small and Sally Greenleaf made a very generous donation of Onieda County land and buildings along Lake Tomahawk to the UW-Madison. Their gift created the Kemp Natural Resources Station to serve “as a research and educational center” dedicated to the conservation of natural resources. If you’ve been lucky enough to spend time there working on a research project, taking a field course or participating in a outreach class or workshop, then you know what a treasure it is. And you might have an old photo or a good Kemp story to share. If so, the station staff wants to hear from you. They are collecting photos and stories for a summer exhibit in the Minocqua Museum. They’ll also display all photos during the Station’s anniversary celebration on Saturday, August 21. Please email your materials to station superintendent Tom Steele at

And circle August 21 on your calendar as a reminder to join in the celebration. Details will be provided in the spring.
