Allen-Edmonds Shoe Corp. and US Bank presented a $5,000 check to Mayor Christine Nuernberg to support the Mequon Nature Preserve.
The funds come from the annual Allen-Edmonds tent sale held each June at US Bank's Mequon location. This marks the fifth year the two businesses have worked together to support Mequon's signature environmental initiative.
The Mequon Nature Preserve, which is almost one square mile, provides a environmental education and recreation site for the region. Today, students of all ages visit the preserve to learn about the environment and to participate in restoring the land to its1830s condition when it was covered by forests and wetlands.
To visit the Nature Preserve, hike its five miles of trails, and climb an observation tower, park at 8200 West County Line Road or at 10000 North Swan Road. The trails are open dawn to dusk.
