Supported by Madison Community Foundation, Verona Area School District, Verona Public Works and USRWA Board President Marty Cieslik, the Whalen Pond Outdoor Laboratory opened on June 6th. The pond is equipped with a spacious bridge linked from Whalen Road to a path winding through restored prairie. This project was in the works since 2011 and will now provide an outdoor classroom for students and be open to the public.
You can find Whalen Pond near the intersection of Whalen Road and E. View Road in the City of Verona. If you have questions about Whalen Pond, please direct them to USRWA Board President Marty Cieslik at firstname.lastname@example.org
