Prairie Rhapsody Benefit Concert
Please join us for Prairie Rhapsody
A benefit concert at Holy Wisdom Monastery
Featuring Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 5:30 pm!
Reverence for creation is a centuries-old Benedictine value. The Sisters care for the land because it is good for the land, the Lake Mendota watershed, and the many people who come to the monastery.
Over the course of the last fifteen years, we’ve partnered with volunteers and donors like you to restore more than 100 acres of prairie, reclaim a 10,000 year-old glacial lake, and create a detention pond to capture sediment and pollution-laden run-off headed for Lake Mendota.
Today, these restored areas provide: 1) quiet meditation places for guests; 2) rich and diverse habitat for wildlife; 3) scenic vistas for all to enjoy; and 4) protection for Lake Mendota.
