The Flyway Trail

The Flyway Trail will connect Winona to Wisconsin and will eventually hook up with the Sparta Elroy Trail.  A huge bridge is being built to take bikers and walkers over the Burlington Northern Railroad tracks.

I took a walk on March 24, 2020 to take a look at how the work was going on the bridge.  It creates exciting possibilities to link Winona and Wisconsin river towns such as Fountain City, Cochran, and Alma as well as the Wisconsin Wildlife Refuge.

A look under the bridge.

Take a look at a video about the Flyway Trail and learn more about the project and how you can get involved.  Exciting things are coming to Winona and our area!

The Winona Arts Center had a free card making day on February 1, 2020, 11am - 2pm.  Lots of happy smiles with Dirk Nelson making sure that all the cards got on the press straight and many volunteers cleaned plates and worked to allow all the artists of all ages to have a wonderful time.

It was a busy place of making and sharing and smiles.

Mary Coughlan, right, has been a long time advocate for the Winona Arts Center.   Two volunteers wash and dry plates to allow everyone to have a turn to create. It takes lots of dedicated people to create such an amazing place.
