5-County Lake Winnebago Project
Eugene G. McLane Meeting Room
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 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.
