Introduction to Raising Chickens
THURSDAY 10/19 | MARATHON CO. LIBRARY, WAUSAU
In July, Wausau approved an ordinance allowing backyard chickens. This means that those in the city with a big enough lot can keep up to four hens in a coop and run in their yard. If you’re interested in setting up a coop in your backyard, come see what it takes to raise your own flock of chickens. Join Heather Schlesser, a dairy agent for the Marathon County UW-Extension, as she shares information such as the housing and food requirements necessary to raise chickens at home. Bring your questions as there will be plenty of time for answers. 6-7:30 pm. 715-261-7230
THURS.-SAT. 10/19-21 | UWSP STUDIO THEATRE
A serious matter gets a theatrical examination in this play performed by the UW-Stevens Point Theatre students directed by Stephen Trovillion Smith. In this thoughtful, challenging and informational production, several college students find themselves facing a moral dilemma when they view a video of what looks like a rape at a party they attended. As the group argues whether they should call the cops or delete the file, it becomes clear that everyone has something to lose. Due to the content, this play is intended for mature audiences, with a post-performance discussion with the director. 7:30 pm; Sun. 2 pm. $20 adults and seniors, $10 youth. tickets.uwsp.edu, 715-346-4100.
