I recently traveled to the Village of Winter to see Dr. Julie Ray, Ph.D. and her Project Northwoods Nature Center. (See the feature article on Page 4B.) I visited the center/nature museum with my friend and Lac Courte Oreilles Community College science professor Mike Heim, who was impressed by the collection of turtles, lizards and other critters, along with fossils and wildlife mounts.

Dr. Ray started the center in a small retail building that required very little rent and then later converted her small house to the present facility that she intends to expand.
