Sep 09, 2015 06:09PM ● Published by Jim

Marsh Haven Nature Center, a non-profit, volunteer-supported center located on the north end of the Horicon Marsh, will be hosting a special John Denver Celebration weekend October 2-4. The event kicks off on Friday evening with a John Denver Tribute Concert in Waupun’s Historic City Hall Auditorium. “Cowboy” Brad Fitch from Estes Park, Colorado will be performing the music of the late singer/songwriter. Brad is a park ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park and a well-known musician in and around the Colorado area. Brad combines his own love of the outdoors with the beautiful nature imagery of songs written by John Denver.

Proceeds from the concert and a silent auction will benefit the youth education programs at Marsh Haven Nature Center. Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert are $15 and are available at Marsh Haven, Waupun City Hall and Rechek’s Food Pride in Beaver Dam. Tickets will be available at the door until sold out. Doors open at 6 p.m. for this general admission show with silent auction items available for bidding throughout the concert.

The weekend continues at Marsh Haven Nature Center, W10145 Highway 49, just three miles east of Waupun with Saturday as a Day of Music and Memories. Brad Fitch will present an outdoor Cowboy Concert at 1 p.m. on Saturday with lunch available for purchase at noon. At 7 p.m. there will be a John Denver Memories Concert with limited seating available. Tickets are $8 and available at Marsh Haven.

Sunday is a Day of Education and Inspiration with several presentations on Ethics and the Environment, Climate Change, and the documentary “Mother Nature’s Child.” The theme of the entire weekend is to celebrate the environmental stewardship, volunteerism,and love of nature that is the legacy of singer/songwriter John Denver through music, education, and community.     

All events will be held rain or shine. Special event admission to the nature center is $3 for the day or $5 for the weekend. Visit www.marshhaven.com for more information or call (920) 318-9518.
