Five Counties Lake Project presentation April 17
Five counties – Fond du Lac, Calumet, Outagamie, Waushara and Winnebago – are working together on a plan to improve the Lake Winnebago system.
Michael Lizotte, president of the Winnebago Lakes Council and professor of biology at UW-Oshkosh, will provide an update on the project at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The program is presented by the Lake Winnebago Quality Improvement Association.
The five-counties program is studying ways to improve cooperation and collaboration in managing the lakes. Lizotte will provide a snapshot of current lake management through an analysis of the ecological, social and economic conditions of the lakes and surrounding communities. He also will seek input from attendees to determine the issues most pressing to lake users.
The project will provide a foundation for future work to coordinate lake management by local governments by helping them find approaches that are politically, socially and environmentally feasible.
5-County Lake Winnebago Project is free and open to the public. No registration required.
