9:00am - 4:00pm — Program
Join us for an engaging day in Sheboygan, networking and learning about Sheboygan’s initiatives to remediate the Sheboygan River from an Area of Concern and what we’re learning about Lake Michigan fisheries and its food web. Adam Payne (Sheboygan County Administrator) will welcome us and provide history about the Sheboygan River’s importance to the region. John Masterson (Wisconsin DNR) will present a Lake Michigan Lakewide Action & Management Plan (LaMP) update. Eric Evensen (WDNR) will bring us up to date on the Sheboygan River Area of Concern. Titus Seilheimer (UW Sea Grant), John Janssen and Ben Turschak (UW Milwaukee Freshwater Sciences) will feature updates and insights into a changing food web. Following lunch and Q&A, we will offer three tours: Deland Park Beach Remediation Project, Wetland Complex at UW-Sheboygan and former Schuchardt Property, and Maywood Environmental Park. We hope to see you there!
