9:00am - 4:00pm Program
Initial Meetup Location
Ansay Insurance Building

Downtown Port Washington
Join us for an engaging day in the field in Ozaukee County, networking and learning about how partners are working together to tie Working Lands to Working Waters to protect Lake Michigan. We will explore how stream restoration projects are improving habitat and aquatic connectivity, while also serving to improve water quality in the region and Lake Michigan. We will visit several restoration projects including a culvert removal, stream re-alignment, culvert modifications and replacements and a dam removal and stream step-pool restoration on a very important, steep gradient, biologically significant direct Lake Michigan tributary, Mineral Springs Creek. This walking and bus tour will also take us through some unique land acquisition and restoration sites in the City of Port Washington and a working harbor. We will then move up into the watershed and onto the land to see how sustainable agricultural practices – working lands at the Paulus Dairy Farm - and efforts of the Milwaukee River Watershed Clean Farm Families are synergistically leading to improved water quality and economic growth for the area.
