Bring Your Valentine to the Rookery !

Featuring Another Fabulous Five Course Feast

Dinner Lecture at the Rookery
I Heart Wisconsin River Trip
Thursday, January 19

The I Heart Wisconsin trip was an 18-day paddle from the source of the Wisconsin River to its confluence with the Mississippi in October 2015. As a positive response to the state's budget cuts to natural resources, Ruth Oppedahl (Executive Director of the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin) decided to use her vacation exploring our state from north to south and meeting with conservation groups and citizens along the way to learn how they help protect our lands, waters and wildlife. She discovered a beautiful, wild river and wonderful people along the way.

The program begins at 5:30 PM, with optional dinner and conversation after the presentation. Register in advance by calling the Cable Natural History Museum (715-798-3890). $5 member/$10 non-member.


Valentine's Day is Just Around the Corner

This year Valentine's Day happens to fall on a Tuesday (February 14). And while the Rookery generally is closed on Tuesday evenings at this time of year, we  don't want you to have to disappoint your sweetheart. So  we're gonna make an exception and open for Valentine's Day with a very special menu that evening.

This romantic dinner always is  one of our busiest of the winter. And last year we filled all available openings. So call soon to ensure your spot.

And lest our weekend guests feel left out, we're also going to give you the opportunity to celebrate the midweek occasion a little early this year by offering our special five course dinner on the Saturday and Sunday evenings immediately preceding Valentine's Day (Feb 11 & 12). We anticipate those evenings will be busy as well, so please help us better serve you by reserving early and indicating your interest in our Sweetheart Dinner.
