Lake group leaders and members from six northern Wisconsin counties will convene for a discussion of current issues related to lake quality and shoreland habitat protection on Friday, July 12,, 9 a.m. to noon, at Nicolet College auditorium in Rhinelander. The theme is “Clean Waters: Our Mission, Our Legacy.”
The meeting will explore ways to encourage lake residents and lake users to take actions to protect lake and stream water quality and the scenic values of the Northwoods. Attendees are expected from Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, and Iron counties.
“The single best and simplest measure people can take to protect their lakes is to keep the shoreline habitat natural or restore it to a more natural condition,” says Bob Martini, president of the Oneida County Lakes and Rivers Association, which is organizing the event with the Vilas County Lakes and Rivers Association.
The event will include exhibits from lake-related organizations and several presentations related to water-quality education and best lake management practices. For more information, contact Martini at 715-282-5896 or Steve Budnik at 715-686-7852.
