The program will be hosted on Zoom and will not require attendees to create a Zoom account. One week prior to the event, we will send confirmation of the event start time, program link and password.
Confirmed Topics/Speakers Include:
- Why are we here…. Water in Wisconsin, Paul McGinley, UW-Extension/UW-Stevens Point
Water in Wisconsin is an important and valuable resource. Ensuring that it continues to provide the recreational and economic opportunities Wisconsin relies on requires that we understand the science behind it and continue to improve technologies to maintain and preserve it. This presentation will try to briefly explore how stormwater and erosion control are connected to the story of water in Wisconsin.
