H2O Water Sentinels and Sierra Club logoThe Water Sentinel Ministry Team is a partnership of First Unitarian Society and the Four Lakes Sierra Club. It was started by FUS members Liz Wessel and Cindy Rose in 2013. The Team plans and leads events in the Dane County area that engage UUs, our partners and others in the community to understand, enjoy and conserve the region’s water resources. There is an emphasis on family-friendly activities.

  • Water monitoring What can we learn from water monitoring and can the Water Sentinels team play a role in protecting our area waters and cleaning them up?
  • Stream quality Ever wonder whether streams are different in an urban and rural setting? Join us and let’s find out.
  • Permaculture and water-friendly gardening and horticulture We will get a tour of a property being restored using land and water friendly techniques.
  • Snowshoeing Snowshoes provide a great way to explore our parks and lakes in winter. Look for a fun and educational outing this winter.
  • Fishing Fish provide an indication of the quality of lakes. We will take a fishing trip next spring/early summer.

Events are offered all year. If you want to join the Water Sentinel Team, please contact Liz Wessel, 238-9934,lizmwessel@gmail.com or Cindy Rose, 271-6440,crose5@att.net, or use the webform below.
