What were you doing in 1995?  Here in Middleton, a small group of concerned citizens were busy forming the Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy. These individuals had the foresight to organize and become advocates for this unique natural area. Their meaningful work and legacy are represented in the current mission statement. “To restore, protect and promote the Pheasant Branch Conservancy and watershed for today and tomorrow.”

“Then and Now and... Now What” is the theme for the 25th anniversary celebration. The intent is to have a series of seasonal events and a variety of activities.

The Organic Dinner has been a staple of MHS for nearly 20 years.
