Pheasant Branch Conservancy devastated by nearly $2.5 million in damage to creek corridor.  (, 9/3/2018)
The rolling hills covered in prairie grass and oak forests surrounding Pheasant Branch Creek are a beloved respite from suburban life for city residents and visitors from around Dane County. The quiet is broken only by the people walking, jogging or cycling along its trails to connect with nature, and many area residents said they were heartbroken to hear of the extensive damage.
