Northwoods six-county lakes meeting

July 16, 2021

9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: Online

Lake group leaders and members from six northern Wisconsin counties will convene for a discussion of natural shorelines, lake stewardship, and other current issues related to lake quality and protection. At present, plans are to hold the event via Zoom, but it could be held live pending progress against the Covid pandemic. Watch for details to come.

The meeting, from 9 a.m. to noon, will explore initiatives underway and planned to encourage lake property owners to keep their shorelines natural and take other measures to help protect water quality, safeguard fish and wildlife habitat, and sustain healthy lake ecosystems.

Other topics will include an update on state legislation related to lakes, rivers, wetlands and groundwater; wakeboating and other water recreation; and tribal perspectives on fisheries and sustaining healthy fish populations. Attendees are expected from Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, and Iron counties.
