Wheekend! August 7-9, 2015


As we recognize all the amazing opportunities that the Driftless Region offers this “wheekend”, we also recognize the loss of a great soul – Bob Anderson of the Raptor Resource Project and “Decorah Eagles” fame. Bob’s untimely death is a reminder that every day we are given is a gift – to share and inspire with those around you, so that they may turn around and do the same. Also, that we live in an amazing place that should not be taken for granted – not for a moment.

Bob’s Celebration of Life will be on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at the Decorah Trout Hatchery at 1 pm. Bob’s celebration is public and all are welcome to attend. His obituary can be found here.

If you would like to make a donation to support Bob’s legacy, please follow this link or checks may be sent to:
The Raptor Resource Project
PO Box 16
Decorah, IA 52101

(The Raptor Resource Project is an (amazing!) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.)

Get out there and savor these amazing summer moments…
