Praise For…

“More than a guide; it’s a great set of stories of the people in towns and cities and their creative approaches to sustainable enterprise. I’m eager to meet these locals over organic food, drink, and trails.” —Sherrie Gruder, sustainable design specialist, University of Wisconsin–Extension

“I often feature Wisconsin’s treasures on my radio program and think I know a lot about the state’s many unique destinations. I was pleasantly surprised to read this great book about green places to visit. It unveiled myriad spots that strive to be environmentally sensitive . . . places I didn’t know existed. Throw in some tasty recipes that incorporate local bounty and you have a handy, worthwhile book to make your Wisconsin travel experiences memorable . . . and green!”—Larry Meiller, Wisconsin Public Radio

“Dillon and Diebel encourage you to venture off the main roads and onto the state’s many scenic byways to discover some of the best earth-friendly options Wisconsin has to offer.  The Green Travel Guide to Southern Wisconsin will likely take you places you never knew existed, especially if your travels have largely been confined to the interstate.”—Wisconsin People and Ideas
