2020 Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention

Wisconsin Waters 2020

Focusing on Resilient Lakes & Rivers

April 1-3, 2020

Online Learning Event

SAVE THE DATE for next year's Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention: March 24-29, 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had to shift to a completely online version of this year's gathering. Although face-to-face networking is at the heart of our annual convention, one of the benefits of holding this event online was that all of the presentations were recorded! Please click through the agenda below to find recordings of presentations. We hope to have everything updated by the end of April.
