Wisconsin Lakes Convention

2009 Wisconsin Lakes Convention
March 18-20
KI Convention Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin

The 2009 Wisconsin Lakes Convention is called Back to Balance, featuring an international symposium on aquatic invasive species (AIS). Experts from around North America will gather to discuss the research, management options, educational ideas and needed policy changes to deal more effectively with this prevailing issue. The goal of the symposium is to share this knowledge with agency staff, lake citizens, businesses, elected officials, and others to help get our lakes “back to balance.”

While AIS is an important issue, it is not the only challenge facing Wisconsin lakes. Wednesday and Friday workshops will offer hands-on training and discussion on many important lake topics including AIS, lake ecology, interpreting and using lake data, working with local partners for lake protection and running a more effective lake group.

Help play a pivotal role in developing Wisconsin aquatic invasive species policy! Come learn and share during these information-packed three days.
