Events at Silverwood Support Park Projects

All Friends of Silverwood Park events have a support component to assist with maintenance or development of the park.

Funds raised at our June 23 Barn Dance  will be used to preserve historic farm buildings, such as the old corn cribs.  While the stone farmhouse is being renovated with County funds , the other buildings at Silverwood must be maintained through donations to the Friends, including volunteer labor.  So, thanks for dancing to help us save the farm buildings!

Irene Silverwood gave her family farm to Dane County in 2002.
