Barn Preservation Program Releases New Book
UW-Extension's Barn Preservation Program recently celebrated its 15th anniversary with the release of a new book titled “Wisconsin Barns,” by Nancy Schumm-Burgess. The book is available online at http://www.saveabarn.com, where $5 of each purchase will go to support barn preservation activities in Wisconsin. The book includes photographs of barns as important and scenic icons of Wisconsin’s agricultural past and present.
Plans are also underway for a tour of area barns to be held in concert with a seminar coming up this fall coordinated by UW-Extension and Citizens for a Scenic Wisconsin, Inc. Read more at www.uwex.edu/lgc/barns
