Lake Winnebago Field Trip
Thursday, April 26
9:30am - 5:00pm (off-site)
Participants will travel in a deluxe motor coach leaving from the KI Convention Center
($25 transportation fee).
If you are NOT participating in this field trip or the all-day workshop, you will be asked on
the registration form to choose two half-day workshops
Join us as we explore the waterways used by the Native Americans and early European explorers of Wisconsin. As we travel along the Wolf River, Lake Winnebago and the Fox River, we’ll put Wisconsin’s largest lake into a regional context historically and explore the many challenges and opportunities that face its citizens today. Our stops and discussion will highlight topics both unique to the Lake Winnebago System and shared by other shallow lakes throughout Wisconsin, including eutrophication, shoreland development, habitat restoration, aquatic invasive species, and water level management. Our tour guides will be a host of local agency staff and citizen experts that can offer a unique perspective on the role of the river in the history (and future) of Northeast Wisconsin.
Space is limited, so sign up early to reserve your spot.
Fee: $25 (Note: The fee covers field trip transportation via deluxe tour bus. Thursday Convention registration is still required.)
