Rose Lake Friends is a group of interested individuals involved in preserving, protecting, and promoting the natural history of Jefferson County’s Dorothy Carnes Park and its principal natural feature, Rose Lake, located just west of the city of Fort Atkinson.
Rose Lake Friends goal is to support continuing development of public awareness and appreciation for the natural world around us, in particular the natural gem being preserved that is Dorothy Carnes Park. We feel a significant movement toward
that goal is to partner and contribute to the success of the Fort Atkinson Science Fair.
To that goal, we are contributing a special award of precision Eagle Optics binoculars to a Fort Atkinson Science Fair participant whose presentation involves in some way, shape, or form, some aspect of scientific investigation of the environment and ecosystem that specifically involves activity at Dorothy Carnes County Park and/or Rose Lake. Participants will need to notify the Fort Atkinson Science Fair judging committee of their eligibility for the special award and of their interest in having a Rose Lake Friends representative evaluate their exhibit. A Rose Lake Friends representative will decide the recipient of the award which will be presented at the awards ceremony. The award also includes a free one-year family
membership in Rose Lake Friends.
