Friends Of The Kettle Ponds

Making the kettle ponds better, one day at a time

Thank you for visiting the web-site for the “Friends of the Kettle Ponds” organization.  We are a group that collectively wish to improve the quality of the kettle ponds in Middleton and Western Madison in Wisconsin. 


Kettle Ponds are glacial features, depressions in the earth created as retreating glaciers left chunks of ice buried in the terminal moraine.  They are a valuable ecological resource that are threatened by the communities that have grown around them.


The group received our Non-Profit organization status in 2002 and continues to make a positive impact on the ponds and the lands around them, so please come back for more information.  See our links to other web sites to learn more.


Up-coming activities:  


WHAT: Esser Pond Prairie talk and tour.  


Michael Anderson,  Ecologist,  BioLogic Environmental Consulting, who has worked with Esser pond for years will lead the tour


WHEN: 6/27/07, Wednesday, 6pm to 7pm

WHERE: Meet at the Capital Brewery, 7734 Terrace Ave.
