This 38th annual Wisconsin Lakes Partnership Convention will be celebrating not only lake volunteers, but also other water and environmental citizen scientists. We are teaming up with the Wisconsin Citizen-based Monitoring Network and the Water Action Volunteers (WAV) to celebrate our volunteers in one place at one time (Stevens Point, March 30-April 2). 2016 will be the 30th anniversary of Wisconsin's Citizen Lake Monitoring Network and the 20th anniversary of WAV, so we have put together a diverse program that highlights the tremendous work volunteers have accomplished with state and local partners.​
