Protect Menomonie’s Hidden Gem for Future Generations
Community Support is Needed to Provide Safe Access to the Devil’s Punchbowl!
Landmark Conservancy is raising funds to build a new lower stairway, and an endowment fund is being seeded at the Community Foundation of Dunn County to provide for other long-term management needs.
We are pleased to have secured matching funds – up to $30,000 from Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources – Knowles–Nelson Stewardship and $5,000 from Community Foundation of Dunn County. This means your gift today will be doubled, up to $35,000.
Help us transform the current lower stairway to a modern, safer structure that will improve recreational experiences and safeguard ecological resources through better management of off-trail traffic.
Current condition of stairway.
“The “Punchbowl,” with its sandstone cliffs, picturesque waterfall, and surrounding mesic forest, presents a beautiful, botanically rich and educationally valuable natural laboratory in a tranquil and attractive setting. It is one of those infrequent, unique places which should definitely be preserved as an educational haven for future generations of students, scholars, and members of the community.”
