Dedication of the Mike Bachner Reserve Album One  

At Saturday's dedication of the Bachner Nature Preserve, Mike Bachner's daughter, Madeline, spoke of the adventures she and her sister, Fern, had with their dad on the creek.

"For my father, traveling on the creek was always about the adventure, and about the story you could tell when you got back, What we have to learn from that and be reminded of is that when we put in on Sugar Creek, here or anywhere else, or on any trip we take, it’s not about executing a smooth plan, it’s about having an adventure and telling people about it.

"That’s how we can educate people, that’s how we can impassion them to use these beautiful wild places, and that’s how we preserve them."
