Please join us in celebrating the 2020 Wisconsin Lake Stewardship and Volunteer Stream Monitoring Award winners at our banquet and awards ceremony on Thursday evening. Pre-banquet socializing/networking time starts at 5:30 pm. Banquet and dinner begins at 6:00 pm.
The Wisconsin Lakes Partnership presents the annual Lake Stewardship Awards to recognize the extraordinary volunteer and professional efforts of individuals and groups who protect and improve our lakes. People are nominated for Stewardship Awards by their peers - what a meaningful way to say, "Thank you!" to the people in your community who work so hard to care for our lakes. Winners of these awards join a select group of women, men, students, and organizations whose unmatched dedication, vision, and commitment ensure that Wisconsin's legacy of lakes will be safe and secure for generations to come.
Volunteer Stream Monitoring
The University of Wisconsin-Extension and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources recognize a small selection of individuals and organizations every year for their efforts leading to increased participation in stream monitoring, collecting stream data and sharing their knowledge and data.
Citizen Lake Monitoring Network (CLMN) Volunteers
We will also be recognizing all of the volunteers who help collect data on our waters across the state. There will be awards given to those who have been volunteering their time for 30 years - wow!
