Welcome to the Southeast Gateway Group (SEGG) Website
The Passenger Pigeon's Extinction: Lessons from the Past for a Sustainable Future (Public Lecture)

When: 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Where: Golden Rondelle Theatre, Howe Street, Racine, WI 53403

In 1914, the last surviving Passenger Pigeon died in a Cincinnati zoo, ending a calamitous half-century in which the pigeon declined from billions to one and then to none as a result of uncontrolled market hunting and the resulting disruption of nesting colonies. On the occasion of the 2014 centennial of this tragedy Professor Stanley A. Temple recounts the sobering story of the Passenger Pigeon and what it can tell us about the ongoing extinction crisis and our relationship with other species.


Professor Temple is the Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Senior Fellow with the Aldo Leopold Foundation. A past President of the Society for Conservation Biology and former Chairman of the Board of The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin, he has received numerous major awards and was recently inducted as a Fellow of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.

It’s Cranberry time again! Our annual fundraiser is now underway

We are once again offering fresh cranberries direct from a family-owned Wisconsin farm. They are packed the day they are picked up from the farm. These are the plump variety that are rarely found in grocery stores and come in a full 1-pound bag. Use them fresh for the upcoming holidays or keep them in the freezer for up to 12 months.

Each 1-pound bag costs just $3.75.

Buying cranberries yourself, or gathering orders from friends and neighbors, is the very best way to support SEGG financially. If you will order 10 pounds or more, we will see that they are personally delivered to you anywhere in the SEGG area!

Your support enables us to publish our newsletter, tag monarch butterflies for Monarch Watch, and battle invasives in both Racine and Kenosha.

The deadline for ordering is October 30th. Delivery and pick up will begin on November 1st.

Contact Jeff Sytsma at Jeff12759@aol.com to place your orders.

Need ideas on what to make with your cranberries? Here are some recipes from our members.
