Discover Wisconsin TV promotes Washburn County Wisconsin

Hello insectamonraca friends,

Happy to report that Happy Tonics is on TV now with a short clip of the Monarch Butterfly Habitat. Diane Dryden, board member, did the interview and tour of habitat with the film crew from Discover Wisconsin. You will see a portion of Victoria Zalatoris art sign, “Native Wildflower and Butterfly Garden.”

Enjoy the 1/2 hour program at www.discoverwisconsin.com

Washburn County is a four season tourist attraction. Come to Shell Lake and we’ll show you a fun time. The Monarch Butterfly Habitat is along side an ATV trail and there is a path within the habitat.  The sanctuary is located along highway 63 coming to Shell Lake from Spooner, WI. It is on the lakeside and two blocks from downtown Shell Lake.

  2010  has been an interesting year in Shell Lake, Wisconsin, USA. The TV film crews were here over 4th of July weekend filming the Restored Native Remnant Tallgrass Prairie which is dedicated as a Monarch Butterfly Habitat. Happy Tonics habitat creation will be featured on Discover Wisconsin on Wisconsin Public Television starting on March 11, 2011. We won’t be the only ones. The Museum of Woodcarving across the street from the habitat will also be aired. Then there is the Shell Lake Art Center and the Washburn County Historical Museum and many more.

In November 2010 the movie film crews were in Shell Lake. Now this is significant. We who live here know how special this pristine environment and city of 1,260 citizens is. It may not be long before the rest of the country finds out about us at movie houses. The film is timely and about a virus infection that spreads very quickly. Only Shell Lake is safe. The virus ended when it came this far north. I am not giving it full credit because I am only watching the trailers. I haven’t seen the cast and crew simply because they are here into the night or early morning. We will keep you posted if it makes the movie houses.  You can view the trailer  at http://www.discursionmovie.com/

A few days ago, we published a post on the Shell Lake Art Center and how the producers promoted the quaintness of
community. It’s a very nice video at http://www.campchannel.com/summer-camps/Shell-Lake-Arts-Center-3757.html

Hope you enjoy learning about the work we do here as citizen environmentalists and entomologists. We’re just the seed planters who enjoy seeing things grow.
