Fall 2022 Lecture Series

Rediscovering Wisconsin

Our state has a rich history and promising future, filled with diverse people and unique places. Tourists and residents alike appreciate our natural beauty, talented artists, and change-makers. This fall, join us as we re-discover our upper Midwestern gem, and reflect on the events, individuals and communities that make up our past and are moving our state forward.

Please be prepared on arrival.
