Wisconsin Water Week: St. Croix Regional Conference

March 11 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


For over thirty years, the Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention has been an annual gathering of lake and river lovers of all stripes: Lake and River Stewards, Lake Leaders, Lake and River Professionals, and members of the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership.

Meeting together to share research, management options, and educational strategies, convention participants gain new ideas and a renewed support network.

Our 2021 event will attempt to bring together an even wider net of people who care for our water. The first ever Wisconsin Water Week will feature 3 days of content-rich presentations and panels on Monday-Wednesday, regionally-focused sessions on Thursday, and locally-focused meetings and events on Friday.

The St. Croix Regional Session on Thursday, March 11 will feature presentations by experts working throughout the St. Croix River watershed.

Join us to celebrate water in Wisconsin and be part of the solution!
