— Green and Rock County residents are invited to attend a benefit party for clean water from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Scotch Hill Farm, 910 Scotch Hill Road, Brodhead.

Residents are holding the benefit to protect Norwegian Creek, which flows into the Sugar River above Brodhead. Local music will be provided and food from local and regional farmers and baked and craft items will be sold. For more information, visit www.scotchhillfarm.com.


Tickets can be obtained for a donation at Package Plus, 1021 1st Center Ave., Brodhead. Checks can be made out to Green Rock Audubon Society, noting the contribution is for Garvey, McNeil & McGillivray clean water legal defense fund.


The local group, Green Rock Citizens for Clean Water, is raising money to support Magnolia Township. The town and local citizens are challenging the state livestock facility siting review board’s Aug. 17 ruling, which overruled town board decisions on a conditional-use permit for Larson Acres’ 1,500 animal unit livestock facility on County B.
