Upcoming May Events

The Virtual Project will be hosting two events in May.

On Thursday, May 6 at 6:00pm CST, Martha Bergland will be presenting The Birdman of Koshkonong. In 1834, Thure Kumlien settled on the shore of Lake Koshkonong. Kumlien, an accomplished ornithologist, botanist, and naturalist soon began sending bird specimens to museums and collectors in Europe and the eastern United States. Later, he prepared natural history exhibits for the newly established University of Wisconsin and became the first curator of the new Milwaukee Public Museum. For all of his achievements, Kumlien never gained widespread notoriety. As this carefully researched and lovingly rendered biography proves, Thure Kumlien deserves to be remembered as one of Wisconsin’s most influential naturalists.
