Unseen Madison beneath the ground

Madisonian David Thompson has a great blog which he describes as “a newsletter of ideas about the Upland-Hillcrest Greenway, Sunset Village Creek, and wider issues of restoring our natural streams in Madison.” Recently the Capital Times featured Thompson and Madison’s lost streams, including what he calls Sunset Village creek (which once flowed into Willow Creek near what is now Hilldale).

Thompson’s Dec. 15 post, “Unseen, beneath our feet,” has some fascinating information and photos about another realm of Unseen Madison: the many wonderful springs that surround and flow into Lake Wingra and the groundwater beneath that feeds them. See the post at saveourstream.blogspot.com.
