Giving Back One Brush at a Time


What do you get when you combine Beaver Creek Reserve’s 400 acres of pristine Wisconsin, forests, wetlands, trails, and streams AND WIN Technology’s volunteer time off (VTO): a whole lot of fun had by WIN employees and some priming and painting of Beaver Creek’s facilities to boot!

This summer, a few members of the WIN team enjoyed some VTO helping Beaver Creek Reserve with a renovation project. The afternoon involved priming and painting rooms to freshen up housing for a few on-site Beaver Creek staff members. The team even managed to keep most of the paint on the walls!

After a great afternoon of painting, the WIN team enjoyed touring the butterfly garden full of fluttering Wisconsin native butterflies.

Beaver Creek was founded in 1947 by a group of Eau Claire County residents who wanted to provide local youth with environmental education opportunities. The reserve has grown from a 160-acre youth camp to 400 acres of beautiful natural habitats that are home to a wide variety of plants and animals.
