In 2018 the Waukesha County Land Conservancy partnered with the Wisconsin DNR and The Nature Conservancy to complete a 52-acre wetland restoration in southern Waukesha County adjacent to the Mukwonago River, an important piece in the larger conservation landscape of the region. The project was funded through the Wisconsin Wetland Conservation Trust, an in-lieu fee wetland mitigation program. Now in Year four, the project is providing water quality improvement, flood abatement, and wildlife habitat to the Mukwonago River watershed. Josh Brown (Wisconsin DNR) and Allison Romero (Waukesha County Land Conservancy) will share about the experience of project planning, restoration, and maintenance, highlighting the trials and tribulations of implementing a large wetland restoration project through key partnerships.
