About the Show

My Wisconsin Backyard features a weekly environmentally friendly/outdoor segment for the web focusing on things people are doing outside, in nature at this time in our city and state. These features focus on the benefits of outdoor activity including, mental and physical health, Eco-friendly gardening, and community engagement.

The North American B-25 Mitchell is an American medium bomber that was introduced in 1941 and named in honor of Brigadier General William "Billy" Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation.


Traci’s backyard is Lake Michigan and she spends as much time sailing on it as possible.  She is also a year around cyclist, runner and still photographer.  Her hope is that by showing you some different options and different things that you can try, you will find your own outdoor passion.   


Brian spends much of his spare time in his backyard garden pretending to be a farmer.  He enjoys teaching those skills to his two young children and believes most of life’s lessons can be learned right there in the garden.
